Ofsted are in Papermover's daughter's school tomorrow

Hello, I'm sorry to ask such a time sensitive question but felt it was worth a try. I had a lot of issues with my daughter's school and their misunderstanding of phonics teaching. They are very heavily reliant on the use of Mixed Methods. I had some amazing help from this forum so wanted to ask anot...

Thank you from Papermover

I would like to thank all of you on the RRF for your help and support in teaching my daughter to read. I have been working with her using SP since the November of her reception year when Maizie on MN put me in touch with you. She is just about to finish year 2 so has been teacher assessed for the en...

Re: Thank you

Yes, RR does seem to be at the IOE. The IOE has links with the schools in my area as the schools and the IOE work in partnership to train teachers. The students then start working at local schools as NQTs. The message these teachers are getting is that mixed methods, RR methods, whatever they are ca...

Re: Thank you

Ok, I'll get on to it.

Although to be fair to RR some of the problems I have seen may be down to being a school linked to the Institute of Education, it does seem difficult to untangle the two.

Re: Thank you

Re: Year 1 phonics check and Key Stage 1 results

Thank you for this. I went straight to the Figure 9, phonics attainment by local authority map. The Borough where my daughter attends school is the lightest colour green, the lowest score at 69-75 % of pupils meeting the required standard of decoding. This is a London borough, and there are only two...

Re: Papermover's daughter and the Y1 phonics screening check

Thanks Geraldine. The school use strategies such as; . Look at the first letter of the word and guess the rest. . Can you see a word within a word? . Is there a rhyme? . Look at the picture, they are there to tell the story. .take a photograph of the word with your eyes, you'll remember the word nex...

Papermover's daughter and the Y1 phonics screening check

She passed very, very comfortably. I am almost certain she would not have done without the support of RRF. I know it's not the end of the road and I also know she does still sometimes resort to the school taught strategies. However this could have been a much bigger problem if I hadn't intervened ea...

Re: Phonics Check

Surely the fact that you have submitted a request for information means Islington should deal with it under FOI rules; you don't need to say "this is a FOI" request?! :roll:

Re: Phonics Check

Hi LGP, I'd love to know about Islington schools and the PCS. All the Islington schools local to us teach Whole Word. If you email me what you have sent to Islington I could try with Camden. Although both areas have a lot of VA schools, so I am not sure if the Boroughs would give out the scores at t...

Re: Butterfly School

I know thisis an old thread but I am so exited I wanted to share my news. I've applied to volunteer at the Butterfly School. I may not be able to help the children in the school my daughter attends, but I will be able to help other local (ish) children. Thanks to LGP for pointing me in the right dir...

Re: DfE paper: Reading: the next steps

Thank you, very interesting. I would live my daughter's primary school to have a book club.

Probably being pedantic, but Redden Court School is in the London Borough of Havering, not in Essex as mentioned in the report. So glad it is doing SP well though, wherever it is.
