Mrs Twigg and Mrs Scott's Orange RWI Group


Phonics - reading and spelling words with a new sound:

Your child should watch and join in the two videos below. They will need paper and a pencil.

Reading ‘ai’ -

Spelling with ‘ai’ -


Throughout this week the children will be reading the orange book ‘Hunt the Tortoise’ and completing some tasks like we do in school. These will be spread out and we will revisit different parts of the book on different days.  You can open the book using the document at the bottom of the page.


Today’s tasks with the book are:

  • Child to read the book for one last time (pages 8-13). They should be able to read the books fluently with expression today.



Watch the video with Miss Woolridge who will introduce a writing task linked to the story. Your child will need paper and a pencil. Ideally this would be lined paper/exercise books, or paper that you have drawn some lines on so that children can practise their handwriting and where letters sit on the line.

It would be great if you could take a picture of your writing and add it to the class blogs for the teacher’s to see!
