At Burstow Primary School we follow the  Read Write Inc. phonics scheme.

Read Write Inc. Phonics is a DfE validated systematic synthetic phonics programme with a whole school approach to teaching early reading and writing, designed to ensure progress for every child.

Teachers using the Read Write Inc. phonics scheme learn how to inject their lessons with energy and enjoyment, from teaching the first sounds to developing fluency and comprehension and engaging children in the best stories
that reflect all children’s lives.

Children learn to read sounds and blend them into words. They apply this phonic knowledge to read and comprehend Storybooks that are carefully matched to the sounds they know.  The aim of Read Write Inc. Phonics is for children to learn to read early.  Everything knits together: The phonics supports the reading and writing; The reading supports the writing, the writing supports the reading. That’s why the scheme is called  Read Write Inc.
