"Sounds Write is a thoroughly effective, relevant and connected way of learning the essential life skills of reading, spelling and writing.
"We had an Ofsted this week at Woodlands and I
was observed by the chief inspector during a phonic ( sounds-write ) and
follow up Literacy lesson - when she invited me for feedback she gave me
'outstanding' and said she couldn't fault anything and she thought the
actual phonic lesson was wonderful and and was even more amazed at the way
the children were attempting to blend and write really difficult words
during the creative part of the Literacy lesson.She said they were so
engrossed with their task and having such fun doing it that they really
didn't want to stop to talk to her!! "
“Sounds~write has had an enormous impact on the standards of reading and spelling at Springfield Lower School. Lower ability children are now able to work independently from an early age and higher ability children are progressing at an incredibly fast rate. Boys aren’t seen as reluctant writers any more because they are used to writing every day at school.”
Dympna McNamee (Principal, St Mary’s Girls’ Primary School, Strabane):
“Sounds-Write has changed our way of teaching literacy. Most of our teaching and support staff are now trained in Sounds-Write and are implementing the programme effectively. There is clear evidence of the success of this method of teaching phonics in the improved reading and spelling standards in our school.”
Gillian York (Deputy Head, Wyvern School, Milton Keynes):
“Sounds-Write gives our children the tools they need to unlock reading and spelling. The children love the sessions, the structure and repetition in which learning is presented to them. Sounds-Write makes children feel comfortable and confident about their skills as they know the pattern of learning which is coming next. The individual session structure also helps children to progress with word building at a rapid rate. The children at our school are happy to tackle any words when reading and spelling, using the codes they have been learning in their Sounds-Write sessions. It is accessible for all our learners including the most and least able, as well as EAL children. The parental feedback is always positive and additional meetings provide help for parents to feel able to support in the most beneficial ways to enhance the programme.”
