Year 1 have been enjoying a range of activities in their Read Write Inc. groups. The children have the opportunity to explore sounds, practice blending, reading and writing. The children also have the chance to work with children from the other classes. All of the children are gaining confidence and enjoying the different games and active learning they are experiencing. A firm favourite among year 1 is using the whiteboards in pairs. One child calls out a word and the other child tries to write it down on the whiteboard. This way both children are practicing their sounds, blends and reading while also practicing their letter/sound recognition and letter formation all while also learning to work as a team. This is just one example of the many fun, interactive and multisensory aspects of Read Write Inc. which often includes activities with sand, playdough and even Slime!
