EY1 RWI

A very warm welcome to you all, to EY1. It has been such a pleasure getting to know your children over the last two days. The children have certainly embraced Google Meets and Home Learning. 

On Monday 17th August, we will begin RWI (Read, Write, Inc). Read Write Inc (RWI) is a phonics complete literacy programme which helps all children learn to read fluently and at speed so they can focus on developing their skills in comprehension, vocabulary and spelling (https://www.ruthmiskin.com/en/). 

EY1, Term 1 Week 2

Dear Parents and Carers,
