When children join Much Birch they follow the Read Write Inc programme.  As children move into Year 1 they progress through this phonics programme and follow it until they are assessed as completing it.  Through the programme the children learn the 40+ phonemes which includes the alternative pronunciation of sounds.  The children become skilled at blending for reading and segmenting to aid spelling as well as learning to read and spell the common exception words.  Read Write Inc is also used to support children in Key Stage 2 as part of timetabled intervention.


Each year we provide Read Write Inc training for parents so they can support their children at home.  Please click on the link below for a PDF of the power point:
