Our mission is to teach every child to read – and to keep them reading. No exceptions.
We give teachers the skills and confidence to reach every child, using the Read Write Inc. Phonics developed by Ruth Miskin.
Read Write Inc. Phonics teaches children to read accurately and fluently with good comprehension.
Children learn the English alphabetic code: first they learn one way to read the 40+ sounds and blend these sounds into words, then learn to read the same sounds with alternative graphemes.
They experience success from the very beginning. We know that the sooner children learn to read, the greater their success at school. This is why we put reading at the heart of what we do. Lively phonic books are closely matched to their increasing knowledge of phonics and ‘tricky’ words and, as children re-read the stories, their fluency increases.
How you can help at home:
Read to them and always discuss the story you are reading to try to build your child’s comprehension skills, inference and understanding.
Practice the sounds they know at home. These are the sounds in the Speed Sound Chart at the start of the storybooks.
Listen to your child read, both their RWI storybook and other storybooks, every day. Make sure that your child brings their RWI Storybook into school every day!
Talk to them! The most important thing you can do is to talk to your child and listen to them when they are talking to you. Try to extend their vocabulary range and their skill at talking in increasingly more complex sentences. For example, try to teach them alternative words for ideas, or nouns they already know.
Look out for our RWI Workshops, where you can find out about how we teach phonics so that you are best placed to support your child’s reading journey.
Make sure that they attend school every day, and that they are on time, as this will help your child to make the most progress.
