  where children learn, achieve and enjoy success

Read write Inc.

In order for you to help your child at home, below are listed the “red words that correspond to the colour text of the RWI series. Feel free to help your child learn the words of the colour books that they are on. Try and resist the temptation to forge ahead and learn to many as they also need to be able to recognize the words in context. Also the children need to be able to recall the red words rather than sound them out. This is because they tend to be non-phonetic spellings.

If you have any queries at all, please speak to your child’s class teacher.
