Here at Sketchley Hill we are committed to giving our pupils enjoyment of reading and writing so we have adopted the Read Write Inc. Phonics and Spelling Programme to underpin our teaching of Literacy. Please click on the Read Write Inc. logo below to find out more.
Ruth Miskin states:
"Our avowed core purpose is to teach every child to read – and to keep them reading. We know that this changes everything; readers have access to new words, new worlds and new ideas. They build an extensive vocabulary and gain new knowledge everyday for themselves. Children who read a lot do well at school – whatever their background.
Our first programme, Read Write Inc. Phonics, is now the market leader in teaching children to read and is used by over a quarter of UK primary schools. It grew out of Ruth Miskin’s work as a headteacher in Tower Hamlets. She knew that in order for a school to be successful every headteacher needed to adopt a consistent whole-school approach to teaching reading, writing and spelling.
Fidelity to the teaching programme, rigorous assessment, tracking and tutoring ensure that schools can guarantee progress for every child."
