Read Write Inc. Phonics teaches children to read accurately and fluently with good comprehension. They learn to form each letter, spell correctly, and compose their ideas step-by-step. 


The Read Write Inc scheme concentrates on learning sounds to enable the children to develop their word building and word recognition skills as these are essential for children to read and spell words accurately with ease. This enables children to see the relationship between reading and spelling from an early stage, such that the teaching of one reinforces understanding of the other. Reading and spelling are treated as reversible processes.


Read Write Inc is taught across the school from Nursery to year 2. All our children are taught 20-30 minutes of Read Write Inc daily. All the children are assessed half termly and regrouped according to their phonic ability. They will read books in school 3 times with the class teacher before they are sent home.


We have found that children practising their letters and the sounds they make, both at home and school make the quickest progress. Read Write Inc. information sharing sessions will be offered during the first term of Reception to help you support your child at home.
