Transform your teaching of early reading and writing
A comprehensive literacy programme for children between the ages of 4 and 9 learning to read. Our trainers know how to get every child in your school reading. Our core purpose is to give you the skills and confidence to do this too.
Read Write Inc. Phonics works because we:
Make learning to read focused and fun; we put as much joy into teaching the sound 'r' as we do into reading a story by Roald Dahl
Use picture mnemonics to teach all Reception children to read and write 30 sounds in two months
Give children storybooks matched to the sounds they know so they develop accuracy, speed and confidence
Use our unique 'three reads' approach to ensure that children love the story and can read it proudly with fluency and expression at home
Provide the tools for your children to become confident writers: by the end of Year 1 children can write at length using exciting vocabulary and good spelling
Pick up struggling readers and writers straight away with one-to-one tutoring - an effective use of pupil premium and pupil deprivation grant funding.
Why are the two days of training essential?
We demonstrate the reading, writing and spelling process step-by-step
We ensure that speaking and listening is at the heart of teaching
We examine footage of real lessons
We help you practise and prepare before you teach
We demonstrate consistent management strategies that speed up progress and ensure participation.
On Phonics Development Days, our Consultant Trainers visit your school to support and coach the literacy leadership team and Phonics teaching staff:
New schools find that one Development Day per term helps them get off to a secure start
Existing schools benefit from at least one Development Day per year
Schools requiring improvement can book more intensive support.
We also provide on-going support through the Ruth Miskin Training School Portal:
A 6-month subscription to the Portal is included with each Development Day booking
The Portal provides access to films, documents, and resources to support leaders and teaching staff.
"Read Write Inc. Phonics has enabled all of the staff in the early years and key stage 1 to become skilled teachers of phonics, which has ensured that our children make wonderful progress from the moment they start in our Reception. For those children who join our school at a later stage or who are new to speaking English, we have a supportive programme of one-to-one tutoring, which means that those children quickly learn letter sounds and learn how to read and write at an accelerated pace."
