Read Write Inc - Phonics
A dynamic whole-school literacy program based around synthetic phonics
Students are assessed and grouped according to their phonic knowledge. Each student is then taught at the level of their phonic knowledge to ensure quick progress.
The 44 sounds and corresponding letters are introduced and taught systematically.
Students learn to blend sounds to read words. Then they use short ‘ditties’ to practise early reading and writing, before being taught more letter–sound correspondences.
Students read a series of levelled, decodable fiction and non-fiction texts and complete integrated writing activities, including spelling and handwriting practice.
Ongoing assessment means that any struggling students are identified the moment they fall behind and, if necessary, given intensive one-to-one tutoring to catch up quickly. Groups are adjusted regularly so all students make the best progress.
