Read Write Inc

Reading and Phonics in Key Stage 1

Read Write Inc. Phonics is a dynamic, vigorous programme that teaches children to read and write quickly and easily. We began our RWI journey in October 2015, to respond to the need for high quality phonics teaching in Key Stage 1. We use RWI as our reading scheme in KS1. More able readers will also access accelerated reader. 

First children learn the common sounds in the English language and how to sound-blend words for reading, at the same time they develop skills of handwriting and spelling. They progress to read and comprehend lively storybooks containing words that they can decode so they achieve early success in reading.

A key element of the Read Write Inc. approach is that practice across the school is completely consistent. This is achieved because every member of staff is highly trained, coached and supported to be an expert in the teaching of reading. Children are grouped by ability allowing lessons to specifically address individual learning needs. Here at Lostwithiel School we are very proud of the rapid progress that our pupils are now making in reading and writing!

We use the highly successful Read Write Inc. Phonics programme to teach our children to read, write and spell. Our children do well in the phonics screening check and by Year 2, the majority are fluent readers with the best chance of success in the KS1 tests.
