This year, your child will be taking part in a daily Read, Write, Inc. (RWI) phonics session.
This is a very successful programme that will enable your child to read and write independently and confidently. Each day your child will learn a new sound and will be taught how to put these sounds together to read words. They will also practice writing these letters and gain the knowledge and skills to write words and simple sentences independently.
Week 1: m a s d t
Week 2: i n p g o
Week 3: c k u b f
Week 4: e l h sh r
Week 5: j v y w th
Week 6: z ch qu x ng/nk.
When it is safe to do so, your child will be given a Home Learning Book with the sounds they have already been taught. Please help your child by hearing, saying and writing the new sounds. You can also help by reading and practicing words that contain the new sounds. Please ensure your child's Red Home Learning Book is returned daily. If you have any questions about your child's home learning, don't hesitate to ask one of the reception teachers.
