‘Reading is like breathing in and writing is like breathing out‘. – Pam Allyn and Ernest Morrell – Every Child a Super Reader.
At Elmwood Infants we value phonics as it is an essential tool to the reading and writing process, just like our lungs are for us to breath. It contributes to lifelong skills which inspire our children to have a passion for reading and writing. Therefore, we are dedicated to enabling our pupils to be equipped with the skills of decoding, segmenting and blending so that they become confident, fluent readings and writers who can spell with increasing accuracy. In order for this to happen, we teach phonics from Nursery to Year Two with the highest expectation that their phonic knowledge and understanding will progress and exceed the age related exceptions.
