Online RWI Lessons
RWI are holding daily online lessons for children on Facebook and YouTube (see the link below). The films of the lessons will only be available at the times below:
Set 1 speed sounds 9.30am and again at 12.30pm
Set 2 speed sounds at 10.00am and again at 1.00pm
Set 3 speed sounds at 10.30am and again at 1.30pm
IMPORTANT: The films are streamed live and won’t be available at other times. They will also release a film of a poem for Reception and Year 1 children to join in with at 2.00pm daily. The poems will be available on YouTube to watch afterwards. This is a great opportunity for children to learn these by heart!
We are continuing to read the blue RWI books so please choose one blue book to read per week at home. There are a number of these books available here and books should be read, for 15 or so minutes, every day. By the end of the week, your child should be able to confidently and expressively read the whole text independently. The other e-books available may serve as a good source for some independent reading.
Oxford Reading Tree Subscription
Oxford Reading Tree (who produce the RWI books) have made lots of free e-books accessible for free. All you need to do is set up a free account to access the resources. I am aware that signing up for ANOTHER site may not be something you wish to do, so Mr Kirby has kindly created an account for everyone to share. If you wish to set up your own account or pay for more access to the site, you are more than welcome to.
