If you need advice on which speed sounds session is appropriate for your child then please contact me.
Below are some PowerPoints that you can use at home to work on sounds. There will be weekly set 1, set 2 & set 3 PowerPoints.    The PowerPoints have some guidance in the notes however RWI have also created a guidance document for parents (please find in files below) which details the phrases and techniques used in teaching the RWI phonics scheme.



Please encourage your child to read each day.  This could be a book they read to you or a book you share together.

You will find the English task below.  I will add to this each day.  

I would like each child to use their exercise book to keep a diary.  I would like them to record what they enjoyed most about their day, no matter how big or small.

White rose hub have created at home learning videos, work and mark schemes that can be accessed via their website.

There are daily lessons on here for Y1&Y2. 

We follow this scheme within school so children should be familiar with the vocabulary and layout used. 


I recommend that the children also do frequent arithmetic work- to help them stay fluent with their maths. I will upload some arithmetic questions daily, that should take around 10-20 minutes.

Be inspired by these role models to dream of what you might achieve in the future. Choose famous people from Tudor, Renaissance, Victorian or Modern times. Each block will allow you to explore one or two changes in aspects of everyday life.
