Reading & Writing

Read for 10 minutes every day! Reading is good for you. It relaxes you, it takes you to exciting places, it teaches you new things and it is fun.



RWI sounds - Can your child recognise and use the RWI sounds that we use as the building blocks for reading and writing? Children are taught to recognise the sounds within words and use these for reading and spelling. e.g. sh o p  becomes shop,     p ar k becomes park

By the end of Year 1 most children should be able to read and spell these common words, they do not fit the phonics rules so children need to learn to 'just know it'.
