Reading: ‘High on a hill’

Throughout this week the children will be reading the Pink book ‘High on a hill’ 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 ‘High on a hill’.


Today’s tasks with the book are:

  • Practise the speed sounds on page 4-5. 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’)
  • Read the red words on page 8. These might be new words to the children which they will encounter when they read the book.
  • Children to read page 9-16.


Spelling practise – practise your weekly Year 1 spellings ready for your quiz on Friday.

Here are this week’s spellings:
