Read Write Inc. is a phonics based programme which helps children learn to read whilst also developing a wide range of vocabulary and encouraging a love of reading.
More information can be found below:
There are 100 words that come up in reading most often and these are called ‘high frequency words’. Some of these words are ‘tricky’ words (said) that you can’t sound out. Other words are words you can sound out (and), but the children need to be able to recognise them straight away.
In Autumn term, we will start introducing the words.
In Spring term, we will be focussing on being able to read all of the words.
In the Summer term, we will be focussing on writing these words and using them in sentences.
Please see the lists below so that you can help your child learn them at home:
–Recognising numbers 0-20
–Understanding the concept of the numbers 0-20
–Being able to select 0-20 objects from a larger group
–Seeing that 0-20 can represent actions as well as physical objects
–One more and one less 0-20
-Addition and subtraction to 20
-Counting in 10s to 100
-Counting in 2s to 20
–Exploring and measuring height, length and distance
At home you can support your child by encouraging them to spot numbers and shapes in the environment!
