Read Write Inc (RWI)
is a programme to get children off to a flying start with their English. RWI is a method of learning centred round letter sounds and phonics, and we use it to aid children in their reading and writing.
When using RWI to read the children will:
learn that sounds are represented by written letters
learn 44 sounds and the corresponding letter/letter groups using simple picture prompts
learn how to blend sounds
learn to read words using Fred Talk
read lively stories featuring words they have learned to sound out
show that they comprehend the stories by answering questions
When using RWI to write the children will:
learn to write the letters/letter groups which represent 44 sounds
learn to write words by saying the sounds in Fred Talk
write simple sentences
Handwriting – Each phoneme we have taught in Read, Write, Inc has a phrase which we use in order to help the children write the grapheme with the correct letter formation.
