Every now and then I think I'm getting my head around what September looks like, and then I remember that we won't be able to sing together, and it just breaks my heart every time.

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.

  • 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.

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.
