RWI Phonics sessions are taught daily for children in Reception to Year 2. We continue to teach RWI to children in KS2 if they require support in their reading. In Year 2, once the children are fluent at decoding, they continue to progress by developing their comprehension skills.

Finally, at Henry Green, we want to help every child to love words, love stories and love reading, because “the more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go” (Dr Seuss).
