Read Write Inc Phonics Scheme

Read Write Inc. is our Key Stage 1 daily literacy session. It is also used as a Key Stage 2 intervention when necessary. The aim is to help the children learn many of the phonics (sounds) used in the English language to assist both reading and writing.

Examples of how each letter and groups of letters ("special friends") are said can be found atOxford Owl. The children are encouraged not to add the 'er' sound after a letter, e.g. the letter 't' is not pronouced 'ter' but is the first sound in "top". Handwriting is taught at a separate point in the day. Click here to download a cursive style handwriting pack, as used in school. You could sign up for free to Twinkl to download further packs.
