We are so proud of how well the children are doing with their reading and we really appreciate all the reading taking place at home. Please continue to do this daily as it really does make such a big difference. It is so important that the children are confident in their sound knowledge and we practise this everyday in school. If you would like a copy of the sounds learnt in RWInc, please ask any Year 1 member of staff and we will be happy to provide you with one. Please continue to practise reading and spelling the list of Year 1 common exception words sent home previously. If you are unable to locate your copy, please let us know and we will provide you with another one.
