Phonics

From September 2013 we have used a school wide approach to phonics called Read Write Inc.
What is Read Write Inc?
Read Write Inc (RWI) is a consistent, rigorous and dynamic literacy programme to teach EVERY child to read by the age of six. Using synthetic phonics, children quickly learn to blend letter sounds together following a fun and effective programme.
Why did we change to RWI?
At Cheynes Infant School we use RWI to teach reading and this runs alongside our normal Literacy and ERIC sessions.The RWI programme has been proven to be a very successful method of teaching every child to read and write using phonics. Evidence of this can be found in the Ofsted Report, Reading by six: how the best schools do it. 
Who follows the programme?
All children in the school are assessed and work in groups at the appropriate level for them.
Where can I find out more about RWI?
The official Read Write Inc website, www.oup.com/oxed/primary/rwi/ provides all the information you need to support your child through the programme. You can also speak to your child's class teacher if you have any queries.
