The children in Year 1 have continued to increase their phonetic awareness and understanding through teaching of the ‘Read Write Inc’ program. The individual participation from each child is fantastic, they are all fully engaged in the task at hand and the program is clearly aiding their progress in their spellings, reading and writing.
The daily half an hour lessons allow children to read and spell new sounds as well as reviewing previously taught sounds. They develop a confident handwriting style as they write prepared sentences with correct spelling and punctuation. It is wonderful to watch a child reading a word independently for the first time, using their new found knowledge and skills. The children rapidly build up their spelling knowledge so that they are able to spell complex words confidently. The children can use adventurous vocabulary in their writing because they have encountered such language in their lessons and they have talked about what the words mean.
Super progress Year 1 - well done!
