‘Where everyone is able to achieve their best’

Mrs Twigg's Pink RWI Group

Monday 11th January

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 to complete the activities.

Spelling with ‘ea’ -


Throughout this week the children will be reading the pink book ‘Light and Shadow’ 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. Log in to Oxford Owl with your child’s class log in, then click on ‘RWI e-book library’. You can then look for the pink book ‘Light and Shadow’. Alternatively, follow this link to the book -


Today’s tasks with the book are:

  • Practise the speed sounds on pages 4 and 5. An adult could point to them randomly for the child or they can practise on their own.
  • Read the story green words on page 6. Children should look for special friends, Fred talk and then read the words (‘Friends – Fred-Read’)
  • Talk about the vocabulary on page 7. These might be new words to the children which they will encounter when they read the book.
Children to read page 9-16 to find out information about shadows.


Handwriting – please look at this video to see your child's handwriting task -

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.


Spelling practise – practise your weekly Year 2 spellings ready for your quiz on Friday. Here are this week’s spellings:
