Wavendon Gate School


Phonics and Reading Schemes

At Wavendon Gate School we use Read Write Inc as our method for teaching Phonics.


Read Write Inc

Read Write Inc., developed by Ruth Miskin, provides a structured and systematic approach to teaching literacy. 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.

Each Read Write Inc. programme meets the higher expectations of the new curriculum and uses effective assessment to accelerate every child's progress. 


We use the Oxford Reading Tree Reading Scheme, as well as a variety of 'real books' that have been carefully graded using the Book Band System. This ensures that children enjoy and experience a wide range of genres at our school. 


We follow the National Curriculum for all subjects in Key Stage 1 and 2. A link to this document can be found under the 'links' icon, and our termly objectives and curriculum coverage newsletters can be found in the Class Pages on our website.
