At Tudor Primary we use the Ruth Miskin ‘Read, Write, Inc’ Phonics programme which is an inclusive literacy programme for all children learning to read. It is aimed at children reading at age related expectation or below and teaches synthetic phonics. Children learn the 44 common sounds in the English language and how to blend them to read and spell. The scheme includes both a reading and a writing focus. Read, Write, Inc. uses picture association to support children to remember the grapheme phoneme correspondence.
Reading is the key that unlocks the whole curriculum so the ability to efficiently decode is essential. The R.W.I sessions are expected to occur each day with no exceptions, as the continuity and pace of the programme is key to accelerating the progress of children’s reading development.
