Blackpool Phonics Information for Parents - Read Write Inc and Reading
At Blackpool Primary School, we teach phonics through Read, Write, Inc (RWI). Read Write Inc. is a phonics-based reading programme developed by Ruth Miskin, which provides a structured and systematic approach to teaching reading, spelling and writing to children. It is used by more than a quarter of the UK's primary schools and is designed to create fluent readers, confident speakers and willing writers.
WHAT ELSE CAN I DO TO HELP MY CHILD TO READ?
Read a variety of books (fiction, non-fiction, rhymes etc).
Discuss the different features of various books.
Talk about the books and other reading materials that you have shared.
Explain the meaning of new words.
Most importantly though, show the fun that can be gained by listening to stories and reading a range of texts.e.g. reading and then following a recipe together
Don't forget you don't have to read just books, cereal packets, shopping lists, road signs, web pages, magazines, newspapers etc are useful ways to practise reading.
