This is the RWI website - the books the children read in school and at home.



All lessons will be available at 9.30 am.

Set 1, 2 and 3 Speed Sounds lessons will restart.
Set 2 and 3 Speed Sounds lessons will include new words for reading and spelling.


  • Open the document below and practise reading simple sentences
  • Sound out each letter
  • Blend the sounds together and say the word
  • Read the whole sentence



  1. Use your story mountain to re-tell the story ‘Cinderella’.
  2. What happens in the story?
  3. Write sentences to retell the middle of the story when Cinderella is at the ball e.g. “Cinderella danced with the prince. The clock chimed at midnight. She ran out of the palace. She left her shoe.”
  4. Parents can write any tricky words ‘the’ and ‘of’ on a piece of paper to help you.
  5. I will attach a document which involves the children building sentences alongside pictures. This will also help them remember the story and when writing sentences themselves.


Remember: sound out each word, finger space between each word, write letters on the line and full stop at the end.



This week we will be learning about addition.

  • Star words you will need: add, addition, is equal to, equation, number, object, number bond, ten frame, part, whole, part-part-whole model
  1. Listen to the video about the part-part-whole model.
  2. Collect 20 objects from your home e.g. pens, toys.
  3. Put the 20 objects into the whole section. 20 is the whole.
  4. Separate your 20 objects into the two parts.
  5. How many objects are in each part? Count each part. What is the whole?
  6. Count the whole (how many objects there are altogether).
  7. You could write the numbers down.
  8. How many ways can you make 20? E.g. 18 objects in one group and 2 objects in the other group.
  9. Say it in a full sentence e.g. “I have 18 objects in this part and 2 objects in this part. The whole is 20. 18 and 2 makes 20. 18 add 2 is equal to 20.”
  10. Can you write it as an equation? E.g. “18 + 2 = 20”.


Key questions: Can you show how to make 20 using a part-part-whole model? How many different ways can you make 20? Can you say the equation in a full sentence? Can you write an equation?

Addition: part-part-whole model and writing equations
