Read Write Inc. Phonics & Reading Scheme


RWI at Addison

 At Addison, we aim for all our children to become fluentconfident readers who are passionate about reading.

We use the Read Write Inc (RWI) programme to get children off to a flying start with their literacy.


What is Read Write Inc?

Read Write Inc (RWI) is a phonics complete 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 is designed for children aged 4-7. However, at Addison, we begin the programme in Nursery and will continue teaching RWI to children beyond the age of 7, as we use a stage not age approach.


Using RWI, the children learn to read effortlessly so that they can put all their energy into comprehending what they read. It also allows them to spell effortlessly so that they can put all their energy into composing what they write.
