Read Write Inc. Phonics

A comprehensive literacy programme for children between the ages of 4 and 9 learning to read. Read Write Inc. Phonics weaves word reading, comprehension, writing and spelling together seamlessly.

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 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 a unique ‘three reads’ approach to ensure that children love the story and can read it proudly with comprehension, 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
