A letter from Ruth Miskin
We all know that reading opens the door to all learning. A child who reads a lot will become a good reader.
A good reader will be able to read challenging material.
A child who reads challenging material is a child who will learn.
The more a child learns the more a child wants to find out.
It is, therefore, vital that your child finds learning to read and write a rewarding and successful experience.
The following pages outline the way our literacy programme works.
We hope that you will not hesitate to ask for any help throughout the programme. We are here for your child!
What is Read Write Inc?
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.ruthmiskinliteracy.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 in Year R and will remain on the programme until they are reading fluently and at speed, normally by the end of Year 2.
How will it work?
Year R & Year 1
Children will be taught RWI daily within structured, fun and fast pace lessons. Your child will be assessed regularly by the RWI lead teacher. When they have reached an appropriate level they will be grouped
according to their reading level.
Children who need to complete the RWI programme will continue with daily phonics lessons until they are fluent speedy readers. Children are assessed regularly and are grouped according to their reading stage not their age.
If your child needs extra support they will have an additional 10 minutes each day to maintain their progress.
How do I know it works?
How can I help as a parent?
