Read Write Inc.
At the core of Read Write Inc. is the vigorous teaching of synthetic phonics. Children learn the 44 common sounds in the English language and how to sound-blend words over a short period of time, alongside letter formation and spelling. They then, importantly, read books with words they can sound-blend, so they get early success in reading. The more sounds they learn, the greater the range of texts they can read. The children really enjoy reading them and talking about the 'Find it' and 'Prove it' questions at the end of each story; comprehension is an integral element of the programme from the start.
