Our theme this term is 'Me and My Family'
As many children begin their journey in Foundation Stage, we will be getting to know the children more and what they like and dislike, their hobbies and interests and we will be learning all about our families. In the middle of this theme, we will also be exploring the celebration of Harvest!
Have a look at the stories we are reading this theme:
Phonics - Read Write Inc
At Holy Rosary we use the Read Write Inc (RWI) programme . Read Write Inc Phonics is a method of teaching reading and writing, which is centred around learning the sounds of the letters (phonics) and then blending them together to read words. The children also learn to break down words into individual sounds in order to write them.
The children in EYFS are assessed by the RWI manager and are grouped according to their ability.
They work in small groups with teachers and teaching assistants every day to learn to read and write new sounds.
At the end of each half term the children will be assessed again to check they have made progress and will be grouped again.
The sounds are taught in a certain order and with rhymes to match the letters.
