Read Write Inc developed by Ruth Miskin, is a systematic approach to teaching literacy. This programme has been specially developed to teach your child how to read and write as well as develop their speaking and listening, comprehension and spelling skills.

Children access daily RWI sessions every morning from 09:05am – 09:30am. In the lesson, children are taught 40+ graphemes (sounds) and the skills to be able to confidently decode and blend the sounds within words independently.

Children will work with their talk partner to read red words (words that cannot be phonetically sounded out) green words and a simple story. Teachers will engage in role-play and freeze frames to bring these stories to life during lessons. There are a range of comprehension questions within the sessions that will help to support children with their confidence and fluency when reading.

Each child is assessed half-termly to ensure that they are accessing the appropriate RWI group to best suit them.
