Reading scheme used in school

The reading scheme we use in school is called Read Write Inc. 

This literacy programme was developed by Ruth Miskin, published by Oxford University Press and is taught in over 5000 schools throughout the United Kingdom.

Our pupils will focus on learning sounds and the letters that represent them, along with learning how to form the letters. The books that are then read are written using only the letters the pupils have learnt (along with a few separately taught ‘tricky words’) which will help when building up confidence in reading.

Read Write Inc - A Guide for Parents

Welcome to Oak Class.

This year your children will be working with Mrs O'Connor and Mrs Shakespeare in Oak.

We are currently learning about the The Great Fire of London in our topic. We are finding out about how it started, why it spread and what was done to try to put it out. We will be looking at firefighting equipment of the time. We will then look at firefighters today and see how much has changed. Here are some home learning challenges you could try at home! Click here!

PE days will be on Wednesday and Thursday and children are expected to attend in PE kit for the day to avoid bringing extra things into school.

During current times we are also asking that children only bring their Blue book bag with reading book and planner with them to school every day along with a water bottle. This will help us to minimise rick within the classroom.

We will be setting homework via the Seesaw app and will be talking to you about this tool throughout the year. It is also the place you should look for work, if you and your child have to isolate for any reason.

Reading books will be changed on a Friday although we will be reading other books and texts every day in the class. It is also good practice for the children to read the same book more than once so please don’t be surprised if they being the same book home again another time.


In class we also use a number of online platforms including Numbots, SeesawDeveloping Experts  and Epic! (please see weblinks below)

Logins for all of these are available in your child’s planner – if you are not sure about these, please ask.

I look forward to working with you throughout the year and if you have any questions please ask or contact me through the class email
