What do the children and staff think about Sounds Write?
Eddie "it helps me to make words"
Maka "it helps me to learn"
Himatullah "it helps me make sentence"
Romeo "I can write now!"
Grace "I like phonics because I can write and read. It is fun to learn to write."
Rowanne (I like it)..."because I can read and write!"
Sophia "We learn new sounds because when we come across them in our writing, we know the words."
Reuben "The reason why I like phonics is because it helps me write and give me energy."
Matilda "It helps me spell longer words. I like the writing."
Nathan: "I like phonics because it helps me be better at my writing. I like the word building and different spellings for each sound."
Angel: "I enjoy phonics because I like learning new sounds and writing. My favourite lesson is where we find the different spellings of a sound."
Tim: "I like finding all the different ways to spell a sound."
And over to the teaching staff...
"I enjoy teaching Sounds Write as it splits the lesson into clear, manageable sections. Each part of the lesson clearly builds on the previous part, starting with word building and ending with revisiting previous learning. The children are engaged in lessons and love being involved!"
"I have found Sounds Write to be hugely beneficial to my group, through the structure of the script they know what is expected of them and I know what I need to teach. I have definitely seen an improvement in some of the children who really struggled to blend and sound words before starting this programme."
