My school introduced RWI from Reception to Y4 back in September and it's gone brilliantly (Y5&6 are dealt with separately). A lot of children have moved up through the phonics levels and are now on the spelling programme but it seems as though they could well stay there for eternity, just working through each unit within each book until they are 103! Annoyingly, I have left my spelling handbook at school so I am unable to check what, if any, formal assessment of spelling performance the scheme recommends - we're in the midst of this half-term's phonics assessment and there is concern amongst a number of teachers that the spellers never get looked at again. Are any of you able to shed any light on what the handbook advises/what your school does? Thanks.
