Reading opens the door to all learning


 

It is therefore vital that your child finds learning to read and write a rewarding and successful experience. Read Write Inc., developed by Ruth Miskin, provides a structured and systematic approach to teaching English. It is used by more than a quarter of UK’s primary schools and in over 50 cities internationally. It is designed to create fluent readers, confident speakers and willing writers.

In our pursuit of raising English standards, we will be using this program throughout the whole of the Primary school. This will provide a structured English lesson that uses the same method from Foundation up to Year 6. We hope that you do not hesitate to ask for help when supporting your child at home.


 
Who is Read Write Inc. for? 
The Read Write Inc. program is for primary school children who are learning to read in English. It enables every child to become a confident and fluent reader at the first attempt. Every child who completes Read Write Inc. learns to read fluently and confidently. We also have another program, Read Write Inc. Fresh Start, for upper primary and secondary school children who are learning to read in English. This uses exactly the same method but with age-appropriate texts.

Using our method:
Children in the early years learn to read confidently and fluently.
Older children with reading difficulties make fast progress.
Children with specific learning difficulties learn to read.
 
Why does it work? 
This systematic and lively program is organised by an in-school manager (Ms Libby for Key Stage 1 and Ms Rebecca for Key Stage 2).
All staff (teachers and assistants) are trained together by one of our trainers who has taught and managed the program.
The children read and write for an hour each day, grouped according to their reading level.
Children do not struggle because the work is too difficult or get bored because the work is too easy.
A few children who need extra support to maintain progress, work with a reading tutor (teaching assistant) for 10 minutes in the afternoons to ensure that they do not fall behind their peers.
 
How and what do the children learn?
 
READING 
The children: ­Learn the 44 sounds of the English language and the corresponding letters/letter groups using simple picture prompts.
Learn to read words using sound blending.
Read lively stories featuring words that they have learned to sound out.
Show that they can comprehend the stories by answering 'Find It' and 'Prove It' discussion questions.
 
WRITING 
The children: Learn to write the letters/letter groups which represent the 44 sounds of the English language.
Learn to write words by saying the sounds and graphemes.
Write simple sentences.
Compose stories based on picture strips.
Compose a range of texts using discussion prompts.
 
TALKING 
Children are assessed so that they work with children at the same level. This allows them to take a full part in all lessons.
They work in pairs so that they:
Answer every question.
Practise every activity with their partner.
Take turns in talking to each other.

The following website provides more information and support as necessary: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5J2Ddf_0Om8&safe=active-  which is a Read Write Inc. Phonemes Pronunciation Guide.

This lesson is the first lesson of the day and it is imperative that your child is here on time to start at 7.15 am.
