Read Write Inc Phonics

Read Write Inc (RWI) phonics is being taught and learnt very well at Spetisbury CE Primary School! Last year 100% of our Year 1 pupils achieved the required standard as part of the Year 1 Phonics Screening (in 2015 only 2% of schools in the UK achieved this)!


Children in Early Years (Squirrels Class) and Key Stage 1 take part in streamed taught groups on a daily basis. This week we held an informative RWI phonics workshop for parents which was very well attended.


RWI is a very lively and vigorous programme of teaching reading. We are very serious and passionate about getting every child to read. It is our aim that every child can read confidently using taught strategies for reading (decoding) and at the same time develop handwriting skills and spelling (encoding). We have a new set of exciting Storybooks and Non-fiction with words that children can decode based on their learning. The more sounds the children know, the greater the range of texts they can read. For more information, including a flyer for all parents and carers and a list of all 'Set 1,2 and 3' sounds, please see the Read Write Inc materials
