At Carr Mill Primary we ensure that our children are learning how to read through our phonics program.  RWI- Read, write, inc is our chosen program and we have been using it at Carr Mill since 2008.  All of our staff are trained and our RWI manager is Miss M Prendergast.  She ensured that all of our children are screened and placed in the correct groups to match their phonic ability; ensures staff are accessing all the up to date materials and training videos and that children are making the expected progress.

Children who are accessing RWI in KS1 receive a RWI session every day.  In the session they will do a mixture of the following: reading, consolidating reading of words with set sounds they have learned and reading words that are new, comprehension and spelling. The amount of each will vary depending on the level and the colour group the children are in.

As the children progress through the program they begin to increase their reading speed.
