Read Write Inc

At Drapers’ Maylands Primary School we have implemented the Read Write Inc. scheme.

The programme is used across the country and is a leading approach to teaching young people literacy.
Read Write Inc is used by more than 25% of the UKs primary school and is designed to create fluent readers, confident speakers and willing writers through the use of phonics. Phonics is a complete literacy programme, for 4 to 7 year-olds learning to read and write and for 7 and 8 year-olds needing to catch up quickly. 
Our aim for our Reception class is:
  • ​Read storybooks and non-fiction books closely matched to their developing phonic knowledge
  • Take home Phonics storybooks to share 
  • Read with fluency and expression
  • Learn to spell using known sounds 
  • Write confidently by practising what they want to write out loud first 
  • Work well with a partner.
