Teaching Reading at Scholar Green

Introducing "Read Write Inc."

At Scholar Green Primary School we us the Ruth Miskin Read Write Inc phonics program to teach the children to read.

What is Read Write Inc? 
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.

Who will be following the programme?
All children in the school have been assessed and have been put into groups at the appropriate level for them. When each child comes off the RWI phonics programme they then move onto the RWI spelling programme.

When using RWI to read the children will:

  • learn 44 sounds and the corresponding letter/letter groups using simple picture prompts
  • learn to write the letters/letter groups which represent 44 sounds

Reading opens the door to learning. A child who reads a lot will become a good reader. A good reader will be able to read more challenging material. A child who reads challenging material is a child who will learn. The more a child learns, the more he or she will want to find out.
