Read Write Inc

Read Write Inclusive Teaching programme (RWInc)
 
At Woodfield we use a synthetic phonics programme called Read Write Inc. to teach reading. This programme starts in Foundation and continues into Years 1, 2 and, for some children, into Year 3. 
 
How does it work?
 
* All children are grouped according to their reading ability.
* Children are assessed every 6-8 weeks and groupings change accordingly.
* Year 1 and 2 children have a daily 45 minute RWInc lesson.
* Foundation children have a shorter daily RWInc lesson, but this increases over the year.
* A few children may need extra support to make progress and they will have extra sessions in the afternoon, either in a small group or on a 1 to 1 basis.
 
What do the children learn?
 
* The children learn to say the sounds for each letter/group of letters using simple picture prompts.
* The children learn to write these graphemes. 
* The children learn to read green words by blending sounds together.
* The children learn to write green words by segmenting the sounds heard and writing the graphemes.
* The children learn to read tricky red words by recognising them.
* The children learn how to spell red words though practice.
* The children read stories which feature the sounds and words they are familiar with. They reread these stories to develop their confidence and fluency. 
* The children talk about the stories and answer questions in order to deepen their understanding of events and characters.
