Slide Phonics


Following the introduction of the governments Year 1 phonic screening test in June 2012 we reviewed the way we taught phonics at Hollingworth Primary School.  As a result we introduced a new system, Read Write Inc. in September 2012.

Read Write Inc. Phonics is for four to seven-year-old children learning to read and write.

It is a full teaching programme proven to develop:


  • fluent, enthusiastic readers
  • confident speakers
  • keen writers


Children are taught to:


  • learn to read and write letter-sound correspondences quickly
  • decode effortlessly, spell and handwrite easily
  • comprehend what they read
  • read with fluency and expression
  • write confidently using oral rehearsal
  • work effectively with a partner to articulate their learning at every step



The Read Write Inc phonics programme has had a very positive impact on our phonics results in recent years.  This year we were very proud to receive a letter from Rt Hon Nick Gibbs MP (Minister of State for School Standards) congratulating staff and pupils on the outstanding achievement in the 2018 phonics screening check.
