Following the departure of the staff member who introduced RWI a year ago, we are overhauling it! I've noticed that the sets of books 1-8 in each colour band have been read. Whilst the rest are in pristine untouched condition! Why waste money on these unless we aren't following the suggested method. When we re-assess at the end of each half term, we restart the scheme with children in revised colour groups but starting back to book 1, which explains why we never get past book 8! I'm told we do this because some children will change groups and enter from a lower ability group. Restarting in the next half term at book 9 would confuse the newbies, as the books are progressive. Whilst this makes sense, the children who don't move group are bored as they've read the books already. Also printing books 9-12 is a waste of time and money and surely cash strapped schools wouldn't buy them if unnecessary? Something tells me we're not doing this right! Any help would be very much appreciated. Thanks.
