Read, Write Inc. - Literacy and Language


In Year 2 and Key Stage 2 we follow on from Read Write Inc. Phonics and use Read, Write Inc. Literacy and Language to support our planning


This is a complete literacy programme for fluent readers - all children in Years 2 to Year 6 read, write and discuss texts with maturity. The programme is totally aligned to the National Curriculum in a fun and meaningful way.  


Literacy and Language:

  • Fully prepares every child for writing using a planning, drafting and revising method
  • Teaches grammar in context so that children can apply it seamlessly in their own writing
  • Supports the grammar and punctuation aspects of the Key Stage 1 and 2 tests 
  • Includes practice tests to build confidence prior to statutory assessment
  • Creates articulate speakers where children justify their answers and learn how to debate. 


Literacy and Language children write confidently and enthusiastically because they have something to say. And they love reading at home – the biggest indicator of success.


At OLSK we use the programme as a starting point in our planning to ensure that we are covering all of the specific elements of Literacy teacher, However, we link the texts with our Enquiry Based Learning topics and ensure that children are given a breadth of texts and genres to feed into this learning.
