Read Write Inc. Literacy and Language

Love teaching literacy

Meet the demands of the National Curriculum in a fun and meaningful way with Read Write Inc. Literacy and Language, a complete literacy programme for Years 2 to 6. Our trainers have worked across Key Stages 1 and 2 and know how to ensure the programme is taught effectively and passionately. Literacy and Language covers the following areas of the National Curriculum: spoken language, reading, writing, vocabulary, grammar and punctuation. For spelling, discover our Read Write Inc. Spelling programme.

Read Write Inc. Literacy and Language works because we:

  • Ensure every child has a deep understanding of what they read: our complete texts by leading authors are introduced using our three-step approach
  • Teach grammar in context, allowing children to use it with understanding: grammar banks are provided to support teacher knowledge
  • Grow children into articulate speakers: they learn how to present and debate, to reason and justify their answers
  • Engage children with drama and discussion: Literacy and Language children write confidently because they have something to say.

Why are the two days of training essential?

  • We give you strategies to encourage children to ask and answer questions
  • We fully prepare you to demonstrate writing; how to plan, draft and edit
  • We show you how to use partner work to build resilient learners who enjoy being challenged
  • We show you how to create a love of literacy in your pupils.

"Literacy and Language gives teachers the confidence to deliver the new national curriculum with enthusiasm and passion. Our children are engaged and motivated and particularly enjoy the stories, plays and poems written by contemporary children's authors."

Emma Rogan, Assistant Headteacher, St Winefride's Catholic Primary School, Newham
