Read, Write, Inc Phonics 

At The James Oglethorpe Primary School we use the Read, Write, Inc (RWI) phonics programme, which was developed by Ruth Miskin (

The programme uses a whole school approach to teaching Literacy that creates fluent readers, confident speakers and willing writers.

RWI is taught for 1 hour each day from EYFS to Year 2. Each daily lesson involves learning and reviewing sounds, reading and spelling words and reading and writing based on the text they are working on. All children are assessed regularly and then grouped according to their phonics knowledge. Once children have reached a certain standard in RWI they then move onto the RWI Literacy and Language programme which continues throughout KS2. Children who need further support continue on RWI until they are ready to move onto Literacy and Language. We are accredited as a RWI certified school.
