At St Aidan’s,  we use the Read Write Inc (RWI) programme to get children off to a flying start with their literacy.

 Read Write Inc Phonics is a method of teaching reading and writing, which is centred around learning the sounds of the letters (phonics) and then blending them together to read words.  The children also learn to break down words into individual sounds in order to write them.

It is a complete programme taught for 45 minutes a day in Key Stage 1. It has proven to develop:

  • fluent, enthusiastic readers
  • a deeper comprehension of texts                  
  • confident speakers
  • keen writers



Throughout the programme, children are taught to:

  • learn to read and write letter-sound correspondences quickly
  • decode effortlessly, spell and handwrite easily
  • comprehend what they read
  • read with fluency and expression
  • write confidently using oral rehearsal
  • work effectively with a partner to articulate their learning at every step.
