Read Write Inc

Shawclough Primary School is a Model School for the Read Write Inc Programme.

The literacy programme is for 4-7year olds learning to read and write.



The programme starts in Nursery and is continued into Reception and Year One.

Children learn the first 30 sounds in short daily phonic sessions. They learn to blend the

sounds together to read words. As they move through the programme they will learn to

read storybooks, non-fiction books and develop their writing and spelling.
