At West Hill we teach children to read by following a synthetic phonics programme (Read Write Inc). Children are taught the individual sounds (phonemes) that blend together to make words as soon as they join our nursery. The phonics programme is continued throughout reception and key stage one. We also run ‘catch up’ programmes when needed throughout the school.
