At St Johns, we use the Read Write Inc. programme, developed by Ruth Miskin, to teach children to read and write.

What is Read Write Inc?

Read Write Inc. Phonics is a comprehensive literacy programme, weaving decoding, comprehension, writing and spelling together seamlessly. Fidelity to the teaching programme, rigorous assessment, tracking and one-to-one tutoring ensure that schools guarantee progress for every child.

Who is Read Write Inc for?

The Read Write Inc programme is for primary school children learning to read and write. Children will begin the programme in the foundation stage and will remain on the programme throughout year 1. Children will continue on the programme until they are at the expected reading level for year 2. Our aim is that the majority of children will come off the scheme early in year 2, however some children may remain on the scheme into years 3 and 4.

Pathways to Read

Once children have completed the Read Write Inc. programme and are able to read fluently, pupils then access whole class and small group Pathways to Read lessons. 

Pathways to Write 

In Key Stage 2, we follow the Pathways to Write approach to teach children to write. Class teachers use high quality texts through our book led approach to teaching writing.
