At Gendros Primary School, our children follow the Read Write Inc. programme for literacy development.

What do the children learn in Read Write Inc. sessions?



The children:

- learn 44 sounds and the corresponding letters / letter groups using simple picture prompts.
- read lively stories featuring words they have learned to sound out.
- show that they comprehend the stories by answering 'Find it' and 'Prove it' discussion questions.



The children:

- learn to write the letters / letter groups which represent the 44 sounds.
- learn to write words by saying the sounds and graphemes.
- write simple sentences.
- compose stories based on picture scripts.
- compose a range of texts using discussion prompts.



Children are assessed so they work with children at the same level. This allows them to take a full part in all lessons.

They work in pairs so that they:

- Answer every question.
- Practice every activity with their partner.
- Take turns in talking to each other.
