At St Katherine’s we use the Read Write Inc. programme to get the children off to a flying start with reading. This phonics programme involves children learning to read sounds and how to blend them together to read words.


We want all of our children to become confident and fluent readers so it is important that we put all of our energies into making sure that every child has support at their level to make sure that they can make good progress. The children will be continually assessed so that we can ensure that teaching matches their needs; some children will quickly move on whilst others will need time to consolidate what they have learnt before they move onto the next level.
