Read Write Inc Fast Track Phonics Intervention

We believe one of the most important things children need to learn is to read. Children who are fluent and confident readers are more able to access the curriculum both in junior school and later in high school.

We use the Ruth Miskin 'Read Write Inc' Fast Track Phonics Intervention scheme. Please find some links below to help parents to support children practising their phonic sounds at home.

Accelerated Reader

The school uses Accelerated Reader. The software provides a tracking system which both teachers and children can use to see how they are achieving. Accelerated Reader allows children to take ownership of their journey to becoming a successful reader by selecting books which interest them. Each book has a quiz linked to it which the children can test themselves on when they finish reading the book. This allows children to track their success and develop independent reading at their own level and pace.

Please use the link below to access Accelerated Reader at home:
