Read Write Inc is the phonics based Literacy scheme of work, which is followed in EYFS and Year 1. It starts by teaching “pure sounds”. This means that instead of teaching B as “Buh” , the teacher says “b” without the “uh”, just sounding the explosive sound. So when they learn to put the sounds together to make a word, they say “b” “i” “n” instead of “buh” “i” “nuh” (as BUHINUH doesn’t sound like BIN!). Click here to listen to hear the pure sounds.
