Read, Write, Inc.
In Year 1 your child has a daily Literacy RWI session where they are taught in a group matched to their ability. They are regularly introduced to a new sound and encouraged to read and write words with that sound, by blending e.g b oa t s t r i ng.
They read a book matched to their ability and complete writing tasks.
The children become confident with blending sounds and are encouraged to challenge themselves by improving their written work by extending their sentences; writing for a range of purposes and including a range of punctuation.
Once your child has progressed through the RWI programme and is confident to use and apply all sounds in Reading and writing, they will have a daily Literacy lesson where they are taught to develop their reading and writing skills through exploring a range of Literacy genres; e.g. story- writing, recounts, non-fiction, instruction writing and poetry.
