For phonics we will continue to use the Read, Write, Inc scheme. RWI is split into 3 sets and this half term we will be focusing on the Set 3 sounds whilst also referring to the Set 1 and 2 sounds. Children will have homework related to the sounds they have learnt that week to consolidate their learning at home.
Children will have a phonics lesson every day with a focus on a sound for 4 of the days. Children will have a carpet input on the sound as well as recapping any other sounds they have already done in Year 1. We will look at some words with the sound in and look at how we spell the sound. We will then move to our tables and practise writing some words with that sound in as well some tricky words that we have picked for the day. 2 out of the 4 groups will then work with an adult centred around a RWI reading book. Over the course of a week children will read and answer questions about the book, practise remembering and writing 2 sentences, edit a sentence to find the mistakes and answer some composition questions. The other 2 groups will have access to the provision in the classroom. The groups will then swap over the next day and this pattern will continue throughout the half term.
