RWI Take Home Books
All children on the RWI programme will bring home a special RWI book every Friday.
Please make sure these are returned the following Wednesday/Thursday so they can be changed every Friday.
We assess the children every 6 weeks and regroup them.
Children are taught by their reading stage and not their age.

Read, Write, Inc
We use 'Read, Write, Inc' Phonics to teach children to learn to read accurately and fluently with good comprehension. Throughout the programme, children learn the alphabetic code: the 150+ graphemes (letters) that represet the 44 speech sounds. They rapidly learn sounds and the letter, or groups of letters, they need to represent them, in three sets of Speed Sound Lessons. Simple and enjoyable mnemonics help all children to grasp the letter-sound correspondences quickly. This knowledge is taught and consolidated every day. High frequency words that are phonically decodable are taught as 'tricky' words (Red Words)and are practised frequently.
Lively phonic books are cloely matched to children's increasing knowledge of phonics and 'tricky' words so that, early on, they experience plenty of success. Repeated readings of the texts support their increasingly fluent decoding.
A thought-provoking introduction, prompts for thinking out loud and discussions help teachers ensure that childre comprehend what they are reading.
Teachers read aloud and discuss picture books with similiar themes to those in the Storybooks, so children build up background knowledge ready for the next Storybook.
