Read Write Inc Phonics

A Parents’ Guide to Read Write Inc. Phonics. 

At Farnham Primary, we use the Read Write Inc. (RWI) programme to get children off to a flying start with their literacy. Read Write Inc. Phonics is a method of teaching reading and writing, which is centred around learning the sounds of the letters (phonics) and then blending them together to read words. The children also learn to break down words into individual sounds in order to write them.

 What is RWI phonics?

Read Write Inc (RWI) is a phonics based programme which helps children learn to read whilst also developing a wide range of vocabulary and encouraging a love of stories. It was developed by Ruth Miskin and more information on this can be found at www.ruthmiskin.com.

Who is Read Write Inc. for?

The Read Write Inc programme is for primary school children learning to read. Children will begin the programme at the end of nursery and will remain on the programme until they are reading at the expected standard in year 2. Our aim is for most children to be off the scheme within year 2; however some children will remain on the scheme in years 3, 4, 5 and 6.

Blending 

Children learn to read words by blending the letter sounds that are in the Speed Sound sets. Help your child learn to read words by sound-blending e.g. c-a-t = cat. 

Help children to say the pure sounds, as quickly as they can and then to blend the sounds together to say the whole word.
