Phonics - Read, Write Inc.

“You can find magic wherever you look.  Sit back and relax all you need is a book!” – Dr. Seuss

Effective Phonics teaching and learning is essential for high attainment in reading and writing. Additionally, confidence with phonics is integral across the curriculum and used in all subjects. Achievement in this area benefits every area of childrens development.

In order to move our phonics teaching forward we have implemented ‘Read Write Inc’. Read, Write Inc. is a clear and consistent inclusive teaching scheme that helps children learn synthetic phonics. The scheme includes both a phonics and reading focus.


Our phonics sessions happen every day as the continuity and pace of the programme is essential in increasing the speed of children’s reading development. We start with Phonics when the children are around 3 years old. 


Read Write Inc. is based on the 5 Ps.

PRAISE – Children learn quickly in a positive climate.

PACE – Good pace is essential to the lesson.

PURPOSE – Every part of the lesson has a specific purpose.

PASSION – this is a very prescriptive programme. It is the energy, enthusiasm and passion that teachers put into the lesson that brings the teaching and learning to life.

PARTICIPATION – A strong feature of Read Write Inc. lessons is partner work and the partners ‘teaching’ each other.
