Phonics, Reading and Writing Information - Year 1

23 Nov 2015


In Year 1, children should learn how to spell the 100 high frequency words. Five and ten of these are sent home each week to be learnt for a spelling test during the following week. Please help your child learn their spellings by using the look/ write/ cover method.

At Brady Primary, children are taught to read and write using the Read Write Inc phonics scheme.
Children learn to:
  • Read and write letter-sound correspondences quickly.
  • Decode words using simple and complex letter sounds such as ‘ay, ee, igh ow’ and so on.
  • Spell and develop their handwriting easily using memorable mnemonics.
  • Read with fluency and expression.
  • Write confidently by first orally composing sentences.
Read Write Inc lessons are taught five times a week in Year 1, alongside at least three Creative Writing lessons, in which phonics are also embedded. Children are encouraged to use their phonic knowledge to read and write during the Literacy Hour.
At the end of Year 1 children will take the National Phonics Screening Check, where their class teacher will formally assess their phonic knowledge, ability to segment sounds and blend them to read real and nonsense words.
Writing Expectations

By the end of the year most children should be able to:
Communicate meaning through simple words and phrases to show an awareness of simple narrative stories.
  • Show awareness of how full stops are used in writing.
  • Make some connection between ideas and events in a simple sentence.
  • Spell some common words correctly.
  • Make phonetically plausible attempts at new or unfamiliar words.
  • Shape letters correctly.

Some children will have progressed further and will:
  • Communicate ideas in sentences.
  • Show characteristics of narrative story writing.
  • Show some evidence of punctuation, using capital letters or full stops.
  • Use appropriate vocabulary effectively.
  • Spell common words correctly and make phonetically plausible attempts at longer words.
  • Have well presented, legible handwriting.

Talk for Writing
Children need to have opportunities to talk about what they are going to write, both to the teacher and other children. This helps to clarify their ideas and extend their range of vocabulary. In class the children have Talk Partners so they can discuss ideas and regularly have opportunities to role play stories.
