Phonics and reading

We hope you are continuing to learn your sounds with Rosie by watching the Read, Write Inc. lessons. The lessons are available from 9.30am, but you can watch them anytime within 24 hours. Please watch and join in with the following videos:

  • Word Time - learning the sound and reading the words. Today's sound is u_e.
  • Spellings - learning how to spell words using the u_e sound.
  • Reading Red Words 2
  • Reading Longer Words

These four videos are key to developing reading and writing skills. There are parts of the lesson which involves reviewing what they have previously learnt. Reviewing previous learning is important as it is making your child more confident reading and writing with these sounds. The new videos (Reading Red Words and Reading Longer Words) are essential to support your child become a more fluent reader.



Today I would like you to choose to read a Yellow Read, Write Inc. book, either 'No Way!' OR 'A Hungry Fox'.


Book Choices


Remember that reading the Speed Sounds, Green Words and Red Words are important before reading the book. The first read of the book should involve lots of sounding out. If the Yellow level book seems too challenging consider reading a Purple, Pink or Orange book.  Please select e books from the Read, Write Inc. book series as these books match how your child is learning their sounds. 


It's time to have a little spelling test and start learning some new spellings! Please test your child on the spellings from last week and then give them a new set of spellings to learn. Remember to carry on practising any spellings your child struggled with previously. 


I think you should be getting more confident knowing what a quarter is now. Today you have a lesson finding a quarter of a quantity using pictures. Use the PowerPoint presentation Lesson 4 and discuss the following questions:


How many altogether?

How many equal parts are we splitting it into to find a quarter?
Does this quantity represent quarter?
How can we check our answer.

A quarter of __ = __.

___ is a quarter of ___.


You may still find it helpful to use counters to complete the tasks. Once you have completed the power point presentation. Please complete the worksheet 'Find a quarter.'
