In Foundation and KS1 we follow the 'Read Write Inc.' Phonics scheme of work. It aims to 'Get reading. Keep reading. Change everything.' 

We also use this to aid some KS2 reading intervention sessions.

Children read daily and bring home a reading book to practice at home. Children also bring home a library book to read for pleasure

Read Write Inc - about the programme

Read Write Inc. Phonics, Literacy & Language, Fresh Start and Spelling are highly successful literacy programmes for 4-13 year-olds created by Ruth Miskin and published by Oxford University Press. The training and support from Ruth Miskin Training, rated Outstanding by the Department for Education, ensure the programmes have the best chance of success in schools.

The four Read Write Inc. programmes are carefully matched to the new curriculum, aimed at developing a love for reading and giving your children the best chance of success in the national tests. They show teachers, teaching assistants and parents step-by-step how to teach all children to become fluent readers, confident speakers and willing writers.

A considerable amount of time and money has been invested in the training of teacher and teaching assistants alike.  

Five key principles underpin the teaching in all Read Write Inc. sessions as taken from the Teacher Handbook:  


Through the Read, Write Inc programme children are taught to recognise sounds and then to ‘sound-blend’ them into words for reading.
