Read Write Inc. Phonics


At Gascoigne Primary School we use Read Write Inc. Phonics to teach children to read and write quickly and easily. They learn the common sounds in the English language, how to sound-blend words for reading and at the same time they develop skills in spelling. They progress to read and comprehend exciting storybooks containing sounds that have been taught so that they can achieve early success in reading. Children are grouped according to ability so that the lessons address their needs.


An important element of the Read Write Inc. approach is that practice across the school is completely consistent and it is our aim to train every member of staff so that all children can be supported to become fluent readers.



What can you do to help?


You will be invited to a meeting to explain how we teach reading.  Please come and support your child.


Does it matter if your child misses a lesson or two?


Yes, it matters a lot.  The way we teach children to read is well organised so that even one missed lesson means that your child has not learnt something they need to know to become a good reader.
