Phonics

Meet Fred Frog! 

      

Hello! My name is Fred Frog. I help the children at Snaith Primary School to learn to read and write using the 'Read, Write, Inc' phonics program. Read, Write, Inc is a structured program which is proven to develop:

  • fluent, enthusiastic readers
  • deep comprehension of texts
  • confident speakers        
  • Keen writers!                          

During Read, Write, Inc. lessons children learn to recognise graphemes and the phonemes they represent.  The following speedsound chart shows the phoneme-grapheme correspondences taught throughout the programme.  

Each phoneme has an associated rhyme to help children remember the phoneme-grapheme correspondences.  These can be seen below:
