Welcome to the Wrens' Class
Teacher - Mrs Jeukens
Autumn Term 2020
The children will have a daily one hour Read, Write, Inc. session and will be grouped according to ability. During each session, the children will review all the letters and sounds learnt previously and will then be introduced to a new sound. They will learn the sound alongside a phrase (e.g. oa as in ‘goat in a boat’). They will practise writing the sound and will be given lots of practise to ‘sound talk’ a range of words focussed on the new sound learnt that day (f-l-oa-t). They will practise spelling words with the same sound/ spelling pattern and these will be sent home as part of homework. Each week the children will work with a partner to read a fiction book; this will take place during the Read, Write, Inc. hour. Every 4 to 6 weeks, the children will be re-grouped depending on their needs, whether it be reading fluency, phonological awareness or writing. Most writing tasks will be linked to the book they have been reading during the session. The children will also have a weekly handwriting lesson.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding anything, please feel free to write a comment in the home link book or pop into school and speak to any of us. Over the year, we will be using this webpage to post lots of useful and important information, such as home learning activities, useful websites and photos.
Homelink books: These must be handed in every morning so that we can receive any important messages or to record if your child has read.
Reading - If your child has read three times or more a week their name will go into a chance box. They will then be in for a chance of winning a prize. Ideally, children in Year 1 need to read daily in order to reach the expected standard and prepare them for Year 2. By the end of Year 2, children are expected to read books fluently; reading words on sight.
