Read Write Inc.
As a school, we teach synthetic phonics as the initial, and most important, approach to the teaching of reading. Our pupils learn to read and write effectively using the Read Write Inc. (RWI) Phonics programme which is a systematic programme for the teaching of phonics, reading, spelling and writing. We want all pupils to begin their journey to read with confidence, develop a love of reading and apply their skills competently to writing.
The children take part in daily RWI sessions as the continuity and the pace of the programme is essential in increasing the childrens reading development.
Read Write Inc. has 5 underlying principles = the 5 Ps:
Pace - no time is wasted during teaching sessions! Children are active and involved in a fun and creative way. The aim is for the children to complete the programme by the end of Year 1.
Praise - Teachers praise the children constantly throughout the sessions. Children learn more quickly when they are praised for what they do well.
Purpose - Each activity has a very clear purpose. The teacher will set this purpose at the beginning of the lesson so that the children know exactly what they will be learning.
Participation - All children take part in all parts of the lessons. This is gained through working in small groups and partner work.
Passion - as a staff we are passionate about our teaching and the benefits of the Read Write Inc. programme. Every session is taught with enthusiasm and passion which brings the teaching and learning to life.
