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

RWI Phonics lessons at home during school closures

From Tuesday 5th January 2021, we will restart our free Read Write Inc. Phonics lessons on YouTube and via Facebook for children to watch at home.

One lesson at each level will show at 9.30 am each day and be available for 24 hours. 

  • Set 1 Speed Sounds, Word Time and Spelling
  • Set 2 Speed Sounds and Spelling
  • Set 3 Speed Sounds and Spelling
  • Read longer words
  • Read Red Words 1: for children who are reading Red, Green, Purple, Pink and Orange Read Write Inc. Storybooks. 
  • Read Red Words 2: for children who are reading Yellow, Blue and Grey Read Write Inc. Storybooks. 
  • Read and Hold a Sentence 1: reading and writing practice for children reading Green, Purple, Pink and Orange Read Write Inc. Storybooks. 
  • Read and Hold a Sentence 2: reading and writing practice for children reading Yellow, Blue and Grey Read Write Inc. Storybooks. 

If you already have the Online Subscription, please continue to send home links to specific films from the Virtual Classroom. This is the best way to ensure children practise sounds and words at their individual level.

Go to www.ruthmiskin.com for the daily schedule (available soon) and further information.

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

Purple : Run, Run, Run, Skateboard Sid and the Hat, What is it? Red Ned

Pink : The Big Match, Dragon Bay, Baboons, The Troll in the Pond

Orange : Black birds, We can play

General Reading Opportunities

If children are well, beyond the work packs, they should read as much as they can and those looking after them should read to them, again as much as possible because the benefits are priceless. There are also online storytime sessions, including the following:

 

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.
