At Chilvers Coton we use the Read Write Inc (RWI) scheme to teach Phonics, Reading and Writing. Children will bring home a library book, the book they have been reading in their Read Write Inc group and a Read Write Inc 'book bag book' which mirrors the phonemes the children have learned in phonics already. Our reading books are closely matched to children's phonics ability and focus on sounds children already know well, meaning they should be able to read the text fluently and accurately. This increases confidence and self-esteem in children and in their reading abilities, leading to more confident and capable readers.
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.
Remember to complete your child's 'round the world' challenge booklet every day your child reads so that they can move on in the challenge!

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/
