At Sandfield Close, we aim for all our children to become fluent, confident readers who are passionate about reading. Children who read regularly or are read to regularly have the opportunity to open the doors to so many different worlds! Reading will give your child the tools to become independent life-long learners. We can achieve this together through: 

  • Read Write Inc - a programme to help your child read 

  • Encouraging children to develop a love of books by reading to them daily; at home and at school 

  • Giving children access to a wide range of books at school and at home 

We use Read Write Inc Phonics (RWI) in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 to give your child the best possible start with their English skills.  

What is Read Write Inc?

Read Write Inc (RWI) is a phonics 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.  It also allows them to spell effortlessly so that they can put all their energy into composing what they write. The children are assessed by the teacher and grouped according to their ability. Small group phonics lessons are taught daily by staff and there are consistent expectations across the range of abilities. At the end of each half term the children are assessed to check on their progress and regrouped. 

Children learn sounds in school which help them to read and write. They then practise these skills by reading a designated online book on Oxford Owl and taking home a ‘Book Bag Book’ which are specifically pitched to both consolidate learning and provide challenge in an engaging and fun way!
