'Read Write Inc.' (RWI), is an Ofsted recommended and highly acclaimed literacy programme which teaches children the 'Simple View of Reading', how letters and sounds in English are related (the alphabetic code). The children rapidly learn sounds and the letter or groups of letters they need to represent those sounds.
Children read well-written, lively phonic books which are closely matched to children's increasing knowledge of phonics and 'tricky' words, so that they always experience plenty of success. Repeated readings of the texts support their increasingly fluent decoding.
