All our pupils are taught to read using Ruth Miskin’s successful ‘Read Write Inc. Programme’.
It is specially designed to teach children to read quickly and help them to become confident and fluent readers. It is a systematic and lively programme.
Why does it work?
All staff (teachers and assistants) have been fully trained in teaching the programme. The programme links reading, spelling and writing in a systematic way at each stage of the programme.
The children read and write for an hour each day, grouped according to their reading level. – Children do not struggle because the work is too difficult or get bored because the work is too easy.
A few children, who need extra support to maintain progress, work with a reading tutor for 10 minutes in the afternoons to ensure that they continue to make good progress.
