Primary Academy

Phonics and Spelling

Phonics and spelling are taught at RPA in line with the National Curriculum. The information below outlines our aims, teaching and learning style and general expectations of the children in Early Years through to Year 6.


Phonics at RPA

At RPA we teach synthetic phonics (pure sounds) this helps children to blend more effectively. We use RWI flash cards to teach the children the new sounds and it also gives them a rhyme to help with letter formation. We teach the children to read GREEN word (words which can be decoded phonetically) and RED words (these cannot be decoded phonetically) Phonics is taught 4 days a week between 9 – 9:30

Here is a link to the pronunciation of pure sounds

Below are some links to documents that you use to support you at home.
