Congratulations to all Year 1 children for completing the Dream Big Project with the National Literacy Trust. It has been an amazing few months since we started our project in March. Children had a wealth of opportunities to delve into the adult working world and gain an understanding of different jobs and roles.

From the Virgin Bank they met Jasmine -an investment banker who worked with the community team, Adam who was in charge of Virgin Bank IT Security and Moira who supported setting up businesses. They also met and interviewed Stella Martinson – a pediatric nurse, Edwin Martinson – train driver for Southern Railway, Steve Comford – a local postman, Violetta Mateva – a fashion designer, Matt, owner of the Farm shop, Julie – a product buyer for Costa Coffee.

A Big Thank you to all the parents who attended our Celebration Assembly.

Our Learning this week…

English

At Howard Primary School we have adopted Read Write Inc Phonics.

RWI is a method of learning centred round letter sounds and phonics, and we use it to aid children in their reading and writing. Read Write Inc., developed by Ruth Miskin, provides a structured and systematic approach to teaching literacy. It is used by more than a quarter of the UK’s primary schools and is designed to create fluent readers, confident speakers and willing writers.

Using RWI, the children learn to read effortlessly so that they can put all their energy into comprehending what they read. It also allows them to spell effortlessly so that they can put all their energy into composing what they write.

When using RWI to read the children will:

  • Learn 44 sounds and the corresponding letter/letter groups using simple picture prompts
  • Learn to read words using Fred Talk
  • Read lively stories featuring words they have learnt to sound out
  • Show that they comprehend the stories by answering questions
