Read Write Inc. at Rushmore

Read Write Inc Lead: Rozzy Freeth


We are a “Get Reading. Keep Reading. Change Everything.” school.

We use the highly successful Read Write Inc. Phonics programme to teach our children to read, write and spell. Our children do well in the phonics screening check and by Year 2, the majority are fluent readers with the best chance of success in the KS1 tests.

Reception Home Reading



Children in Reception begin their reading journey learning the initial sounds, then blending these sounds to read words. Children begin reading words from the Word Time 1 list. As their confidence grows, they progress through the reading lists and begin to read words in storybooks called ditties. Click here for a list of Word Time words to read with your child. Your child’s class teacher has also sent home a blending book for your child to read. We have plenty of copies, so please ask your child’s class teacher if you need a new copy. 

You must share a story with your child each day to develop their love for reading. Children will bring home a story to share each week from the class book corner.

Year 1 and 2 Home Reading 

Children in years 1 and 2 who access the RWI programme will bring home two stories each week. The first story is their Book Bag Book which contains the sounds children have learnt at school, so they will be able to read this decodable book to you! The second book is a story to share, and this should be read by an adult as it contains ambitious vocabulary children can’t read for themselves.
