What is Read Write Inc?

This is a new and innovative English programme we are trialling with our readers who are below a Level 3 in reading. In other schools where the programme has been used children have been shown to make accelerated progress in both Reading and Writing! 


Who is on the programme?

All children in Foundation are on the programme and are taught in ability groups. Children from Year 1 to Year 4 who are below a Level 3 in reading are also grouped by their ability.


How does it work?

The English language is a very complicated one. Did you know it is made up of 44 sounds and that there are many different ways of writing these sounds? Read Write Inc is a rigorous and highly strucuted programme that teaches children: the different ways of recognising these sounds; how to blend these sounds into words when reading; and how to segment/ split them up for spelling. The books/ texts that children read within the lesson only contain words & sounds children have been taught before ensuring that children have the skills to successfully read the text and therefore boosting learners confidence & chances of succeeding!
