River View is a Read Write Inc school and we have been working hard over the last few years to ensure we deliver this programme very effectively to ensure all children have the best possible start with their reading and writing. Ruth Miskin, a leading educationalist devised this synthetic phonic programme.
Read Write Inc is an inclusive literacy programme for children learning to read and write which
begins with the Foundation Years going through to Year 2. This programme is also excellent for older children with learning difficulties. Children are taken from the first stages of reading, Read Write Inc enables them to read confidently and fluently.
At River View as part of Read Write Inc we focus on the 5 P's. Praise, participation, purpose, passion and pace. We use these principles in all lessons as they are the foundation of effective teaching and learning.
River View is proud to be associated with Read Write Inc and we would recommend it to anyone looking to raise standards in basic skills.

Across the school, children are given opportunities to read, and be read to, every day. We place emphasis on developing children’s fluency, expression and understanding. A wealth of fiction, non-fiction and poetry texts are available for the children in our class reading corners and we use a variety of texts to deliver the requirements of the English Curriculum. To assist in their development, pupils are encouraged to read as much as possible at home. Children take home a reading book and home reading record every day to provide them with the opportunity to share their reading with people at home.
We regularly deliver whole school book units designed to captivate and inspire our children in order to help develop a child’s love of reading.
