Phonics Scheme

 
Read Write Inc

We introduced the Read Write Inc phonics program at Marlborough Primary School in Spring 2012.

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 phonicschildren quickly learn to blend letter sounds together following a fun and effective programme
Why are we switching to RWI? The RWI programme has been proven to be a very successful method of teaching every child to read and write using phonics. Evidence of this can be found in the Ofsted Report, Reading by six: How the best schools do it.
When will my children be starting the RWI programme? We are officially starting the programme in term 3, 2012. However, our teachers have already been trained to follow the programme and some children in KS1 are already using the RWI material.
Who will be following the Programme? All children in KS1 will be following the programme, together with those children in KS2 whose assessment indicates that they would benefit by being given support to catch up. They will have already been assessed so will be put into groups and given the appropriate RW1 reading and workbooks to follow.
How often will my child read with a teacher? Children will read their RWI books every morning with a trained member of staff (E.g. the class teacher, teaching assistant or other support staff). These books will be kept in school. Children will still bring home a reading book and we would like parents to listen to them read every day.
Where can I find out more about RWI? The official Read Write Inc website, www.oup.com/oxed/primary/rwi   This should provide all the information you need.
