Read Write Inc is a whole-school literacy programme for 4-11-year-olds designed to create fluent readers, confident speakers and willing writers.
The Programme contains:
Read Write Inc at Westglade Primary
We have implemented this scheme wholeheartedly across the whole school. Teachers and support staff have their own RWI group for the first 35 minutes of every day (Monday - Thursday, with 'Big Write' happening on Friday). Children are assessed at the end of every half term, with assessments being moderated, which allows quick movement between groups for children who are making rapid progress. It also shows which children need more practise in a group. We see good and outstanding progress for the vast majority of pupils.
The majority of pupils will be taking home a RWI book. These are changed in RWI lessons every 3 or 5 sessions - depending on the group they are in. Homework is sometimes set around this book - but the main task for home is to read their RWI book. Children need to bring in their RWI book every day!
Those children who are in the beginning stages of the programme may not have a RWI book. Instead they will either have a sound/letter formation sheet to practise, or they will have a 'Ditty' sheet which they have read within their group. which also has formation practise on the back. This will be sent home to be practised just like the RWI books.
All children within school are given a levelled reading book and have the opportunity to visit the school library. Our aim is encourage our children to want to read and enjoy reading. With a variety of new books in our library areas we hope we will achieve this!
