Following the introduction of the governments Year 1 phonic screening test in June 2012 we reviewed the way we taught phonics at Hollingworth Primary School.  As a result we introduced a new system, Read Write Inc. in September 2012.  

Read Write Inc. Phonics is for four to seven-year-old children learning to read and write.

It is a full teaching programme proven to develop:

·         fluent, enthusiastic readers

·         confident speakers

·         keen writers

Children are taught to:

·         learn to read and write letter-sound correspondences quickly

·         decode effortlessly, spell and handwrite easily

·         comprehend what they read

·         read with fluency and expression

·         write confidently using oral rehearsal

·         work effectively with a partner to articulate their learning at every step
