At Alderman Cogan’s CE Primary School, we want our children to be the best that they can be. We want to give them the best possible chances in life and one important way we can do this is to encourage every child to be a reader.
Read Write Inc.
We are excited to be part of a nationally funded Read Write Inc. project, one of only 60 schools in the country. Read Write Inc. has a long history of proven success and we have seen the positive impact on our children’s confidence to read from day one.
Read Write Inc. is more than phonics, it is integrated comprehension, writing, grammar, spelling vocabulary and handwriting. There is role-play and drama with every child participating in the lesson. Story time and poetry time develop the children’s knowledge of traditional tales and a wide range of poetry. The simple assessment, clear tracking and straightforward grouping ensures that every child learns rapidly at the right level.

Read Write Inc. Fresh Start is a phonics intervention that gets the struggling readers and writers at the expected level for secondary school.
It gets children reading and writing fluently in 33 lessons.
It uses rigorous assessment so every child is taught at the right level.
It engages older children with age-appropriate comic strips, quizzes, amusing stories and edgy non-fiction texts.
It uses simple and effective spelling strategies to increase confidence when writing.
In our school we have two small Fresh Start groups working for an hour every day.
Reading Buddies is a program in which two children read together. Please click here to learn more.
Inference training is a group intervention for pupils in Year 5 and Year 6 who are able to decode but struggle to get full meaning and enjoyment from their reading. Please click here to learn more.
Readathon does something amazing! We get children reading for fun through our sponsored read in schools. The money raised provides children's hospitals with regular storyteller visits, plus a mobile bookcase jam-packed full of brand-new books, which are replenished every six weeks.
Our school took part in Readathon for the first time in 2016. It was a great success and we raised £1219.69! Our school received book vouchers worth 20% of the money raised and they have been used to buy some new book for our school library, e.g. the series of “How to Train Your Dragon”.
