Read, Write, Inc

At St Peters Folkestone we use the Read Write Inc (RWI) programme to begin our children’s reading and writing journey.   RWI is a method of learning centred round letter sounds and synthetic phonics and it has proved to get children off to a flying start with their literacy learning.  


Reading opens the door to learning. A child who reads a lot will become a good reader. A good reader will be able to read more challenging material. A child who reads challenging material is a child who will learn. The more a child learns, the more he or she will want to find out.


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.


When using RWI to read the children will:


When using RWI to write the children will:

  • learn to spell words by saying the sounds in Fred Talk
