9:15 – 10.00 – Phonics/Reading  

Please see your child's tapestry journal where you will find what RWI level they are to select the phonics video daily and one to two ebooks via oxford owls for your child a week (see details below) . 

Phonics : Please watch one of the following videos linked to your child’s RWI level: 

Set 1 A Group-Focus sound – s : 

Set 1 B Group- Focus Sound Set 1-y:

Ditty/Green/Red Group- Focus Sound Nk-

Reading :  

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!
