Stanton Bridge Primary School

Read Write Inc

What is Read Write Inc?

Read Write Inc. is a lively and fun synthetic phonics programme that develops basic phonics skills and teaches children to read and write quickly. It is designed to have a very positive impact on children's phonics and spelling skills.

Read Write Inc. helps children to learn the 44 common sounds in the English language and teaches them how to blend sounds for reading.The children are grouped according to their reading level. After each assessment new groups are created to ensure that children are taught according to their needs.

The children read lively and engaging story books containing words they can decode using their phonic knowledge. This ensures early success in reading and the children's confidence really grows as a result.

The children also develop comprehension and speaking and listening skills as partner work is a key element during the sessions.

Why are we at Stanton Bridge teaching using RWI?

The RWI programme has been proven to be a very successful method of teaching every child to read and write using phonics. The National Curriculum states that children should learn to read by applying their phonics knowledge to decode words.

Who will be following the programme?

All children in the school will work their way through the programme starting in Reception. Once children have successfully completed Read Write Inc they will engage in reading comprehension and writing sessions. A range of reading material is used at Stanton Bridge like: Project X, Big Cat, Rigby Navigator, Oxford Tree.
