'For every future, for every child'

Read Write Inc.

At St Gregory's we use the Read, Write Inc phonics programme to teach phonics.

 

 

Read Write Inc (RWI) is a consistent, rigorous and dynamic literacy programme to teach EVERY child to read by the age of six. Using synthetic phonics, children quickly learn to blend letter sounds together following a fun and effective programme.

 

The RWI programme has been proven to be a very successful method of teaching every child to read and write using phonics. All children in Years R to 2 will be following the programme. They will have already been assessed so will be put into groups and given the appropriate RW1 reading and workbooks to follow. The programme can also be followed by older children to catch up. These classes will be using RWI as their reading scheme.

 

Children will read their RWI books every morning with a trained member of staff. These books will be kept in school. Your child will still bring home a reading book and it is still important that you listen to your child read every day.
