Read Write Inc

At Hill View Infant School we use the phonics programme Read Write Inc to teach our children to read and write.

"Read Write Inc. Phonics is a complete literacy programme, for 3 to 7 year-olds learning to read and write"


The programme runs from Nursery through to Year 2 and is taught in small ability sets from Year 1 onwards. In reception, children are taught in their class groups although the focus may be differentiated for different abilities.  

Children move through the programme at their own pace and are taught sounds and words to support their progress throughout.
