Week Beginning Monday 28th September 2020

Opal Class have made me so proud this week with the maturity and resilience they showed this week with a change of routine. I am so grateful to have such an independent and happy class who make be smile everyday!

This week we will be discussing our change of topic to Autumn. Before we transform the room, I am going to collect ideas from the children to see what they would like in their classroom.

RWI at St Day and Carharrack
 
Children will attend a daily RWI lesson with their class teacher and will begin to attend groups based on their reading ability. Your class teacher will send home weekly resources and eventually books for you to support your child's reading journey at home. Daily reading at home is essential and supports your child's school to help your child reach their full potential in order to be successful through their primary schooling. 
 
There will be opportunities for you to come into school, experience a RWI lesson, enjoy books with your child in school and also discuss your child's progress and attainment each term. 
 
We would like to thank you for your ongoing support with your child's reading at home. This learning opportunity is a wonderful family moment in any day as well as a hugely valuable learning opportunity. 
 
Set 1 Sounds
 
When your child first starts in reception, they will begin their reading learning on 'Set 1 sounds'. This is the earliest starting place in the RWI program. The children begin to say, recognise and read single letter sounds. Please see the attached documents to support embedding your children's learning in school, at home. 
In RWI we teach the pure sounds to help the children blend. Check out the Ruth Miskin video  below which give examples of these :)
