Regular Weekly Timetable

We use Read Write Inc to teach phonics in Key Stage 1. Phonics is taught daily to all children in Key Stage 1. This supports their decoding and reading skills. At the end of Year 1 (usualy at the beginning of June) all Year 1 chidlren complete a phonics screening check. This is done in an informal manner with children. Children have practise tests throughout the year so that they are familiar with the process. If children do not pass their phonics, they re-sti the phonics screening check in Year 2 (with the Y1 children). Children who do not pass in Year 2 have additional phonics and further interventions in Year 3, to support their reading. 

Children in Year 2 continue learning phonics using RWI, if needed. Once they have completed the RWI scheme, they move on to daily Guided Reading sessions. 

Children in Key Stage 1 also have daily maths and writing lessons, generally in the morning. The afternoons usually focus on wider curriculum lessons, for example Art and History.

Wednesday: Library

Friday: DEAR (Drop Everything And Read)

PE: Monday (1JI), Tuesday (2MH) and Thursday (1/2WP)

HOMEWORK: Our homework focuses on basic skills that support the foundations of learning: spellings, number facts/times tables and reading (listening to your children read).

TT ROCKSTARS: Your child can use these safely at home at any point under your supervision and monitoring. You can also check on their progress at any stage. Children have their own log ins to access TT Rockstars at home. Other maths apps may also be used, information will be shared by class teachers.

READING BOOKS: Reading books are handed out on Monday and are to be returned on Thursday. Please read as regularly as possible with your children.
