Thorn Grove Primary School

Phonics & Reading


English is at the heart of all children's learning.  Being literate enables children to understand, to express ideas and convey information effectively, in both spoken and written forms.  We believe that literacy and communication are key life skills and it is, therefore, vital that children find learning to read and write a rewarding and successful experience.


We use Read Write Inc Phonics (RWI) to give our children the best possible start.  Please see the below document for further information.
