I am wondering if any one had any ideas or help they can give me'. I am currently being the RWI manager for the school and to date I have been able to run a very effective RWI programme to all of key stage 1 and children who require it in Ks2 ( i.e. Below a level 2a). It has been running since January and we are now doing our 3rd cycle of ability groups from the baselines as directed in the programme. When reception did their baseline assessment at the end of spring 2, the majority are still doing speed sounds but a group of children are according to the assessment ready to do ditties (b and c) and some are achieving the level to do (d) which is the first set of books. In addition to this 5 children are above this!!! So on paper you cod argue that you need a group doing speed sounds, a group doing ditties 1-20, a group doing ditties 21+ and a group going the books. If not then how are they being stretched and challenged? My question is how do you do this when they are in a very CI/ outdoor/ Indoor environment? Currently they have 30 mins max phonics each day where they are split into 4 groups and basically doing the same. The assessments show they are not all the same and over half are to be honest filling in time. How can I put a programme in place that in ks1 lasts an hour into reception where I would be lucky if they could manage 30 mins. The main issue I have is staff saying , which I do agree with, it goes against the eyfs if we do RWI, but from a RWI point of view they should be going more.? Hope this makes sense? Can anyone help or tell me' how they manage it. We are lucky in reception that there is 5 clear ability groups and there are enough staff to cover the groups.
