Read Write inc Curriculum

Read Write Inc

At St. Gabriel’s we want to give our children the best possible start

in life. To give each child the gift of reading is to give them the

ability to read and learn for the rest of their lives. Our approach to

teaching and learning of reading at school is through the Read,

Write, Inc. (RWI) programme. We feel this is the best programme

for our pupils because:

Is rooted in synthetic phonics

Has been tried and tested over and over again

Is systematic, structured and therefore results in rapid

teaching and learning of sounds and blending

Means that, importantly and simply, when children know these

sounds well and can blend, they read books that are carefully

matched to the sounds they know. This means that children are

successful from the very beginning!

Includes two whole days intensive training for staff prior to

delivering the programme.

The children are taught in groups according to their reading ability.

This enables us to teach our children more effectively as the work is

pitched at the correct level for them, to develop skills, confidence

and a love of reading.
