We will be holding a reading and phonics meeting for Year 1 parents at 2.40pm on Thursday 10th November in the school hall. The meeting will finish by 3.10 so that you will be able to collect your child at the end of the day.
In this meeting, we will be explaining how we teach phonics and explain how the Read, Write, Inc (RWI) phonics programme is used to develop reading skills. We will be explaining the terms and phrases we use such as ‘Fred fingers’ and blending. You will also have an opportunity to look at some of the resources we use to support the children’s journey in learning to read.
We will demonstrate a typical phonics lesson so that you can have an experience of how we teach our daily phonics lesson and we will be explaining how you can support your child with reading at home.
We hope that you will be able to attend and we look forward to seeing you there.
The Year 1 Team
