Read Write Inc.

We are a “Get Reading. Keep Reading. Change Everything.” school.

We use the highly successful Read Write Inc. Phonics programme to teach our children to read, write and spell. Our children do well in the phonics screening check and by Year 2, the majority are fluent readers with the best chance of success in the KS1 tests.

Ruth Miskin Training recognise us for teaching the programme with fidelity and passion – we know what it takes to make reading and writing pleasurable and rewarding for our children.

This badge recognises that we:

  • Raise standards in reading and writing for our children
  • Are all expertly trained by Ruth Miskin Training
  • Gain the latest programme updates through regular visits from our Ruth Miskin trainer

Support our most vulnerable readers with extra one-to-one teaching every day.

At Treverbyn we use Accelerated Reader as scheme to motivate and promote independence in reading for children between Y2 and Y6.

Accelerated Reader (AR) is computer programme that encourages independent reading in pupils. The software initially screens pupils according to their reading levels, and suggests books that match their reading age and reading interest.

Pupils take computerised quizzes on the books they have read and earn points related to difficulty. Children are encouraged to choose books around their suggested level that appeal to them.

Their understanding of the books is measured by taking a short quiz at the end of each book they have read. Children are motivated by reaching their targets and collecting points for different books read.

Progress is monitored by regular star reading assessments which check the children’s reading ability, reading age and fluency.

Children often like to read books from home which as a school we encourage. Often their ‘home books’ also have quizzes that the children can take.
