Read Write Inc.


At Shiremoor Primary School we use the Read Write Inc. (RWI) programme to get children off to a strong start with their reading.  Using synthetic phonics, children quickly learn to blend letter sounds together following a fun and effective programme.  Phonics provides children with the building blocks needed to become successful readers.

‘Every child has the right to read because without being able to read children have absolutely no access into their education.’ (Ruth Miskin, Creator of RWI)

‘The more that you read, the more things you will know.  The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go’. (Dr Seuss)
