How We Teach Reading

We are a READ WRITE Inc. School

  • Get Reading
  • Keep Reading
  • Change Everything!

We use the highly successful Read Write Inc. Phonics programme to teach our children to read, write and spell. By Year 2, the vast majority are fluent readers and have the best chance of success in the KS1 assessments.

We teach the Read Write Inc. programmes with enthusiasm and passion – we know what it takes to make literacy pleasurable and rewarding for our children.

The Read Write Inc. programme is supplemented with a broad range of reading books which children read in school and at home. In school children read to their teacher or teaching assistant for individual support and challenge each week. These books are sent home each evening with an expectation that parents/carers continue to support reading at home at least twice a week.

We use books from a variety of schemes and publications. The books we use in school are from the Read, Write Inc. and Oxford Reading Tree schemes. Alongside these we use ‘real’ books which are organised into coloured book bands to show progression.
