Phonics

Read, Write, Inc. (RWI)

If your child is in Reception or Year 1, they will have a daily phonics lesson. We use the Read, Write, Inc. (RWI) phonics scheme to teach early reading. If your child is in Year 2, they may have daily RWI lessons. If your child is in Year 3, they may have regular phonics interventions.  

The daily phonics teaching plan below is there if you choose to use it, depending on your own confidence and time. You may choose to watch the daily phonics lesson with your child and you may wish to read the e books which are available for free. You may wish to pick and choose from the activities below. There is no expectation that you will do this; it is here if you want to.

Storytime with Nick

From Monday 20th April, you can watch and listen to Storytime with Nick; films of well-loved stories read by Nick Cannon, a trained actor, teacher and trainer and a wonderful storyteller. See him in action here.
 
Three stories will be published each week on the RWI YouTube channel and are ideal for Nursery, Reception and KS1 children. So far, they are filming stories by Jeanne Willis, Tom Percival, Jill Murphy, Cressida Cowell and Claire Freedman.

Most films will be available for the period of school closure.
