Reading at Ivanhoe

Reading is an extremely important life skill. Children who read regularly, or who are read to regularly, have the opportunity to open the doors to so many different worlds!

More importantly, reading gives children many skills that enable them to become independent, life-long learners.

At Ivanhoe we teach early reading through the Read, Write Inc phonics programme. We also teach reading skills through guided reading, individual reading and in comprehension sessions in each year group.

We strongly encourage parents to read daily at home to your children to help them develop their reading skills.

At Ivanhoe we use Read Write Inc. Phonics (RWI) to give your child the best possible start with their literacy. See below for guidance on how the RWI programme works together with some useful links. Miss Huck is the Read Write Inc. lead teacher, so if you have any questions about RWI, contact school who can refer you to her.

For more information about Read Write Inc, our What is Read Write Inc? document is available to download.
