At Birchen Coppice Academy, we use Read Write Inc Phonics (RWI) to give your child the best possible start with phonics and to ensure that they become fluent readers and confident writers.

Read Write Inc (RWI) is a phonics literacy programme which helps all children learn to read fluently and at speed so they can focus on developing their skills in comprehension, vocabulary and spelling.  The programme begins in Nursery and moves onto the Literacy and Language programme in Year Two.  We continue teaching RWI to children if they still need support with their phonic knowledge and reading beyond Years One and Two.

Five key principles underpin the teaching of in all Read Write Inc sessions

  1. Participation
  2. Praise
  3. Pace
  4. Purpose
  5. Passion

RWI was developed by Ruth Miskin and more information on this can be found at https://ruthmiskin.com/en/find-out-more/parents/

Early Reading

We believe in the importance of developing reading through high quality texts. We give our children a range of carefully balanced and structured books that progressively develop a range of reading skills and promote reading for pleasure.

We recognise the importance of phonics to ensure that pupils can read independently and with confidence. Our ‘early readers’, contain a range of phonetically decodable books that are banded in sequential phases linked to the Read Write Inc programme. This enables children to practise and apply the sounds they are learning at home so that they become fluent, confident readers.
