Phonics and Reading Letter.
As of Monday 11th May, the home learning for phonics will be changed to a reading lesson. The children should be able to recognise and read all set 1, 2 and 3 sounds. They now need to apply their knowledge into reading and building their fluency in reading as well as practicing comprehension skills. This will support them in the transition away from phonics lessons into reading lessons in Year 2.
If your child is not secure in all of the phonics sounds, it is vitally important that they continue to learn and practice these sounds. If your child needs to continue to learn the sounds, below are some options to be able to do this, as well as using the flashcards that were sent home.
RWI speed sound videos on youtube:
The table below shows the times the lessons go live, however these are available for 24 hours after the video.
|Set 1||Time (AM)|
|Speed Sounds and Word Time||10.00|
|Speed Sounds and Word Time||10.30|
|Sorytime with Nick (Mon, Wed,Fri)||2.00|
There are games which help the children to apply their phonics sounds at phonics play:
Please then log onto Oxford Owl and read a book. There are Oxford reading tree books as well as Read Write Inc books, reading is crucial for the children to be able to apply their phonics knowledge.
If you need any more help or support, please contact Miss Pilbeam or Mrs Frain.
Summer Term – Week 2
Summer Term – Week 1
Hello Robins and Wrens, we hope you have had a lovely Easter Break. We are now starting work for the Summer Term:
Children should be having daily practice of phonics. See below for ideas of activities.
Flashcards – Use the sound cards that we sent home to have daily practice of recognising sounds, you can use the list of RWI sounds to find any highlighted sounds to focus on or we will be sending out a daily sound to focus on.
Word Reading – Use the flashcards to build some words that children can practice reading, these should include a mixture of set 2 and 3 sounds and be both real words and made up words. There will also be some words sent out including the focus sound. The children should read words using this method:
Spot special friends – Fred Talk (sound it out) – Read the word.
Spelling – Children can practice writing 2/3 words using some of the special friends they have been practicing. You can also use this time to practice spelling some common exception words.
Reading – Children should be reading daily. Use their reading books or Oxford Owl online to read a book matched to your child’s ability. Each book should be read 2-3 times to build up fluency. Ask your children questions about what is happening during the stories, there are questions you can use at the back of the books.
Please find below a list of useful websites that you may wish to use to support the children whilst they are learning at home.

Both of these websites are especially good for maths games.
This website has videos and songs that support both English and Maths and are also good for a movement break.
RWI On Ruth Miskin facebook and youtube, there will be live RWI lessons. Set 1 will be 9.30 or 12.30. Set 2 will be 10am or 1pm. Set 3 will be 10.30 or 1.30. We would suggest the set 3 lesson.
