Read Write Inc. Phonics

Being able to read is the most important skill a student will learn. Reading has far-reaching implications for lifelong confidence and wellbeing. We are aware that learning to read is challenging for some of our children. An independent review of reading undertaken by the Government concluded that:

“High quality phonic work should be the prime means for teaching students to read.”

Sir Jim Rose, The Rose Review of Reading 2006

With this in mind, we launched Read, Write Inc. at Our Lady of Grace Catholic Infant School in  2015. Read, Write Inc. is a synthetic phonic program that provides a systematic approach to teaching reading, writing and spelling. Read, Write Inc. is fully compatible with the broad and rich curriculum available at Our Lady of Grace. We agree with the creator of Read, Write Inc. that,

“Reading is the most important skill students must master at school – it is the necessary condition for all learning

Ruth Miskin
