Telling one of my favourite stories for my Babies and their kids. The story is ‘The Emperor’s New Clothes’ which tells you expensive designer clothes aren’t everything. It’s not what you wear it’s how you wear it! Enjoy ❤️https://t.co/mEFrnyIAqc https://t.co/E9DfYzPevK

“I can only imagine that being asked to stay there could feel very isolating and frightening for you and your family. “It may mean spending more time with the person who is harming you."

One day we will be able to hug each other again and pop round for a cup of tea. We will look back with grief and pain but also what brought us back together and reminded us what really matters. One day we will be free, but different, kinder and better. https://t.co/lENH3wAoop

All reading is reading. If a child is enjoying reading something - PLEASE LET THEM! Never dismiss the things that they love as too young, or too silly, or not educational enough. Because those are the things that will make them lifelong readers. (Art: Bill Watterson) https://t.co/kc5qodacPf

Reading

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.

 

Daily phonics teaching plan

Watch the half hour lessons on the RWI YouTube platform. To access the lessons, click on this link:

You don’t have to watch the lessons live; they will stay on the platform for 24 hours. Check the table below to know which live lessons your child should watch.

Red group

Set 1 speed sounds

9:30 daily

Green and Purple groups

Set 2 sounds

10:00 daily

Orange, Blue and Grey groups

Set 3 sounds

10:30 daily

These lessons will be on every day until the 3rd April 2020.

 

Spell the words taught and reviewed in the online lesson – you could also teach other words that have the sound in.

 

Spell common exception words for your child’s year group – these can be found at https://home.oxfordowl.co.uk/.  Scroll down and look at Learning at Home Activities which is split into year groups.

 

After spellings, choose one RWI book from the free RWI  e books available on Oxford Owl, (some groups currently only have 1 book available) which are noted below. To access the e books, go to https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/for-home/find-a-book/library-page/, click on Levels, then Read Write Inc Level and choose the colour group your child is in.

 

  • Ask your child to read the book out loud.
  • They should use a pointer e.g. a pencil or a ruler to read the words. 
  • You could practise reading it together to start with and then ask your child to read. 
  • The book you choose should be read every day, until your child is fluent. 
  • There are guides and questions at the end/back of the e book to work through.

 

Current RWI e books available on the Oxford Owl site – you should choose the colour that matches the colour RWI book your child brings home. 

 

Red : Sun, hat, fun, Nog in the Fog

Green : Rag the rat, Go and Play, Let’s Go, Nip and Chip
