Read Write Inc for Reception to Year 2

A Caring Christian Family Where We Grow Together
Let Your Light Shine ~ Matthew 5:16

Reading opens the door to learning. A child who reads a lot will become a good reader. A good reader will be able to read more challenging material. A child who reads challenging material is a child who will learn. The more a child learns, the more he or she will want to find out.

Using Read Write Inc, the children learn to read effortlessly so that they can put all their energy into comprehending what they read. It also allows them to spell effortlessly so that they can put all their energy into composing what they write.

When using RWInc to read the children will:

  1. Learn 44 sounds and the corresponding letter/letter groups using simple picture prompts.   For example, the letters a & y together are pronounced ay (two letters one sound) and the letters i&g&h together are pronounced igh (three letters one sound). Each sound has a rhyme to help the children remember e.g. ay – May I play ?
  2. Learn to read words using Fred Talk.   For example, the children read each word by splitting it into sounds - s - ight - t=sight.
  3. Read lively stories featuring words they have learned to sound out.   Although the reading books appear to be fairly simple in content, each book incorporates a range of reading, comprehension and writing activities. This enables the children’s learning to be systematically reinforced and extended.
  4. Be able to show that they comprehend the stories by answering questions.
