Read Write Inc. Phonics lessons are available on YouTube for children to watch at home during school closure

Practise Set 1 sounds in Speed Sounds Lessons; learn to read Red Words and practise reading and writing using Hold a Sentence.

All lessons will show at 9.30 am each day and be available for 24 hours.

Today's RWI Phonics lessons are now live on their YouTube Channel. Please use link below:


This week we will revisit all the sounds that we have previously taught (e.g. m, a, s, d, t, i, n, p, g, o, c, k, u , b, f, e, l, h, r sh, j v, y, w, z and th). Any practise with these sounds at home will help support your child with their phonics knowledge. This week we will be learning the ch and qu digraphs (two letters which make one sound) Please scroll down for a copy of this week's letter formation sheets. Please don't worry, if you do not have a printer! Just write the 'ch' or 'qu' sound in a yellow, orange, light green felt tip for your child to trace over, just as they do on their weekly homework sheets.

Our new topic is 'Superheroes' and our first story is 'Superworm' by Julia Donaldson.

Click on the 'Stories' icon in our home learning folder and listen to the story 'Superworm.' Draw a picture of your favourite part of the story. Then use your sound mat to have a go at writing a sentence about it. Don't forget to say your sentence out loud to your grown up first. Remember your finger spaces. Don't forget to start with a capital letter and end with a full stop.
