Review:

`The scheme provides children with good writing models. It builds confidence and stretches gifted children.'
Holly Nolan , Dulwich Village Infants School

`We like the repetition and rigour of RWI Comprehension, and children always enjoy working with the modules linked to children's books. The pitch of the activities is very good as it encourages all the children and helps to stretch them.'
Downshall Primary School, Ilford.

`RWI Comprehension gets our children to a secure Level 3.'
Bea Coates, Grafton Primary School, Holloway

`The children's imagination takes off. They start to use sentences they would never have used before they did the Comprehension modules. Children love the Vocabulary Catch and the Fantastic Sentences.'
Val Wing, Whetstone Field Primary School, Walsall
