RWI Phonics 

Oxford Owl have made available for parents all the ebooks linked to each RWI level. This means we no longer need to upload the books to the webpage. Instead, please go to the webpage below. If you go onto ‘ebooks’ then you will need to register (this is free of charge) and then you will be able to access all the ebooks and choose the correct banded level for your child. Please note that the RWI phonics scheme is based on lots of repetition. Therefore, we usually read the same book about 3 or 4 times before moving onto a new book. For some children they may need to read it more than this to ensure they are completely fluent in reading the book (no sounding out). 


A general guide is: 

1st read – decoding all the words – sound out as much as you need to. 

2nd read – read for fluency (try to read with more fluency and expression). 

3rd read – read with fluency, expression and comprehension. Try answering the comprehension questions at the back. 


This website also provides lots of other information for parents about phonics. It has other resources on here too should you wish to explore! 

  • For every phonics session, please continue to watch the speed sounds lesson on the Ruth Miskin Youtube channel. Then read a book from the webpage detailed above. 


Timings for the speeds sounds lessons are: 


Set 1 lesson is at 9:30am or 12:30pm (red, green & purple groups) 

Set 2 lesson is at 10:00am or 1:00pm (pink, orange and yellow groups) 

Set 3 lesson is at 10:30am or 1:30pm (blue and grey groups) 


If you are unsure which group your child should be in, please contact your child’s class teacher. 



Guided reading – for those of you in guided reading, please complete the guided reading task on the webpage. 

“The world according to Humphrey”-chapter 5. 


2nd Breaktime 


Do a chosen mindfulness activity e.g. drawing, going for a walk (if you can), dancing, listening to music and deep breathing etc.

L.O. - to compare different amounts of money (understanding).

Lunchtime and playtime 


Challenge-13 & 14- Go Your Own Way! 


Decision time Year 2! Please use today’s challenge time to look back at all of your ideas from the week... 


DECIDE- Which is your best idea?

  • Be clear about what you want to achieve through your project... 

I would like you to be ready to hit the ground running with your project next Monday...Good luck! 


Story time  

Mrs Hunt reading Flat Stanley by Jeff Brown Chapter 2 



Mrs Hunt (our music leader) has uploaded music videos to our website (curriculum – music). Every Friday afternoon we would like the children to practise the songs.    


  Mrs Hunt will be uploading new ones every now and then. The idea is that when we get back to school, we can have a celebratory singing concert. If your child would like to record themselves singing, please email clips to Mrs Chloe Hunt at: The clips will then be collated into a video.
