Read, Write Inc
At Bevington, we follow Read, Write Inc. which was designed by Ruth Miskin. Read, Write Inc. helps all children learn to read fluently and at speed so they can focus on developing their skills in comprehension, vocabulary and spelling. We believe that phonics is the gateway to reading and that the systematic and consistent approach ensures our pupils to ‘keep up’, rather than to ‘catch up’. We begin the programme in Nursery and will continue teaching Read, Write Inc. to children beyond the age of 7 if they still need support in their reading. Pupils are taught phonics daily for at least 20 minutes in groups.
Phonics and Reading
It is important that children are reading ‘decodable’ books that match their phonics learning. We also encourage reading for pleasure, and teach wider comprehension through a variety of ways. This includes using Guided, Shared, Modelled, Buddy and Home Reading across our school day and curriculum.
Reading enhances learning in all subjects, and by far the most important part of our curriculum.
