At Chilvers Coton we use the Read Write Inc (RWI) scheme to teach Phonics, Reading and Writing. These are usually the books that children bring home to share and practise at home. However, we do encourage children to read a wide variety of books and your child may also be given other books to read at home. Children are also allowed to choose a book from our class libraries to bring home to read too.
If you would like to know more about the Read Write Inc scheme or how we teach reading and phonics, please speak to your child's teacher. There is also a facebook page dedicated to Read Write Inc if you would like to keep up to date with developments and news.
Read Write Inc (RWI) was developed by Ruth Miskin, a former teacher and Head Teacher. The programme is highly structured, leading to children rapidly learning to read. We use the programme right from when children are ready in Nursery up to Year 2 and we then use the follow on programme Literacy and Language.
Children are all grouped according to their ability rather than their age so that they can learn to read and write quickly. The programme teaches the children to blend and segment using phonemes rather than letter names.
You can find more information on the Ruth Miskin website as well as the RWI facebook and twitter pages. http://www.ruthmiskin.com/en/parents/
