Read Write Inc

At Downsell Primary School we aim to teach children to become lifelong readers who have a love of reading and who:

• read confidently with understanding

• read from a wide range of texts and reading material

• have a good understanding of, and ability to, apply knowledge and understanding of phonics

• show interest and independence in making reading choices

• develop imagination

• are able to apply reading skills to create interesting and engaging writing

We teach reading through a systematic phonics programme called Read Write Inc. This is for 4 to 7 year olds learning to read and write, and for 7 and 8 year olds needing to catch up quickly.

Every child in EYFS and KS1 is taught phonics using the Read Write Inc. programme. This is taught daily for approximately 50 minutes where children learn in ability groups, and rehearse phonics and application of phonic skills.

Children that have completed the RWI programme will be taught reading comprehension in ability groups.
