Our Reading schemes at Yardley Wood Community Primary School are Read, Write Inc and Accelerated Reading. Read, Write Inc is the phonics programme we use, which teaches children the phonetic knowledge to be able to read independently and become fluent readers, whilst Accelerated Reading promotes reading for pleasure and motivates pupils to practise and develop their reading and comprehension skills. (Have a look at our Read, Write Inc and Accelerated Reader pages for more information on how we teach Reading).




To develop skills for becoming proficient writers we use a genre led Talk for Writing programme in which children learn how to write in different styles, for different purposes and for different audiences. We use Letter Join to practise handwriting and Spelling Shed for developing spelling skills. 





At Yardley Wood Community Primary School, Reading and Writing are taught as separate subjects and have different school leaders responsible for them: 

  • Miss Blackwood leads Writing
  • Mrs John leads Key Stage 1 Reading including the Read, Write Inc programme
  • Mrs Froome leads Key Stage 2 Reading including the Accelerated Reader programme
