Four Elms Primary School

Tuesday 9th Feb

9- 9:30 




RWI – watch the relevant speed sounds lesson:  

Set 1:   ch - 

Set 2: Oo (book) -   

Set 2/3 –  If you have been learning set 2 and have moved onto set 3 please watch this video: Er -   

Set 3 – if you have been learning set 3, we are going to go through the sounds again to help build our fluency: Ea -   

Then read the RWI book online 


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! 


Guided reading  

Complete the guided reading task at the bottom of the webpage. If the reading is taking you longer than the time allocated, then feel free to share the reading with an adult.

 A Rhyming Couplet is two lines that rhyme and complete one thought.   


This term’s character trait is flourishing and within this we will be looking at self-awareness and resilience.  This means being the best we can be and taking responsibility for our own wellbeing and supporting others by being self-aware and resilient.  


Task 2: 

Using the word bank, you need to find words that rhyme. Use your knowledge from yesterday to help you find the rhyming words.  

This activity should not take you too long, please write your rhyming words down.
