Read Write Inc. Fresh Start is a synthetic phonics intervention programme for pupils in years 5, 6 and 7 working below NC Level 3. The programme gives older children who have not yet cracked the 'code of reading' the chance to catch up and become confident, fluent readers - enabling them to access the secondary curriculum. Ideal for paired / group work or working one to one with a pupil.
Using all the strategies that are so successful in Read Write Inc. Phonics, children are taught the 44 sounds systematically in lively, fast paced phonics lessons and quickly start to sound blend them to read words.
Fresh Start Modules and Anthologies provide specially written age-appropriate stories and non-fiction texts which the children have the phonic knowledge to read, building their confidence from the start. Writing is developed alongside reading.
