At St Gregory’s we use the Read, Write Inc Programme for teaching phonics and reading in KS1 as well as for some older children who have gaps in their phonic knowledge. RWI teaches children letter sounds that enable them to decode words to both read and spell. In RWI sessions, children will practice both reading and writing as we believe that 'practice makes permanent!'
Please see the RWI page for more information on this programme.

In lessons children will be taught the different elements of English in context and usually through the use of a text as a starting point.
