Curriculum Maps

This section will tell you all about the things we learn at school.  Like all schools in England, we must follow the National Curriculum – it sets out subjects and content which we must teach. Within this, however, there is flexibility so that we can interpret and plan to meet the needs and interests of our children now and for the future. The key aim for all our teaching and learning is to provide opportunities for all pupils to learn, to enjoy and to achieve. To find out what your child is learning about in all the other subjects this term click on the Curriculum Overviews below.

The phonics provision at Rosewood Primary follows the very successful pattern of development within the Ruth Miskin ‘Read Write Inc’ scheme. This scheme embraces the content and emphasis within the national programme but does not follow the precise format. Phonics scores at Rosewood have consistently outperformed  local and national levels since the programme was introduced and staff trained its application.


Read Write Inc. 

Read Write Inc. Phonics, Literacy & Language, Fresh Start and Spelling are highly successful literacy programmes for 4-13 year-olds created by Ruth Miskin and published by Oxford University Press. The training and support from Ruth Miskin Training, rated Outstanding by the Department for Education, ensure the programmes have the best chance of success in schools.


Read Write Inc. programmes are carefully matched to the new curriculum, giving your children the best chance of success in the national tests. They show teachers, teaching assistants and parents step-by-step how to teach all children to become fluent readers, confident speakers and willing writers. 


Our school uses: 

Read Write Inc. Phonics for our children in Reception to Year 2 and for our children in Years 3 and 4 who need to catch up. 

Read Write Inc. 1-1 Phonic tutoring Kit for our children in Years 1 to 3 who need additional support.

Read Write Inc. Spelling for our children in Years 2 to 4

Phonics text

Read Write Inc. Phonics is used by over a quarter of the UK’s primary schools. It is a comprehensive literacy programme, weaving decoding, comprehension, writing and spelling together seamlessly. Ruth Miskin developed the programme during her time as a headteacher in Tower Hamlets. She believes that in order for a school to be successful, every Headteacher needs to adopt a consistent whole-school approach to teaching reading, writing and spelling. Fidelity to the teaching programme, rigorous assessment, tracking and one-to-one tutoring ensure that schools guarantee progress for every child.
