For the first four weeks of this term the children will be split across the Key Stage into different phonic groups linked to their phonic ability. Here they children will have focused teaching on the sounds that they currently do not know. After those four weeks all the children will be reassessed and placed in the most suitable English sessions for them.
For those children whose phonics is already secure, they will develop their reading fluency skills and comprehension skills.
Nearer the end of this term we will start our whole school spelling program RWI. Each week we will focus on a different spelling pattern and the children will bring home the list to practise each week to help them during the lessons in school. Those children who still need daily phonics will receive this during the spelling session or in an afternoon session as an intervention program.
