Daily Phonics

We want our children to continue learning to read and have familiar routines during this difficult time for families. 

Read write inc phonics lessons at home from Monday 23rd March, these are scheduled for the next 2 weeks. They will only be available at the times below: 
set 1 speed sounds at 9.30 am and again at 12.30 pm
set 2 speed sounds at 10.00 am and again at 1.00 pm
set 3 speed sounds at 10.30 am and again at 1.30 pm
Note: films are streamed live and won't be available at other times. 
Read Write Inc. Resources
Ruth Miskin's team will be offering a range of free support materials so that children can continue their Read Write Inc. learning journey away from the classroom during these uncertain times. This will include a ‘phonics spine’ of 72 free eBooks matched to Read Write Inc. levels, along with 62 Speed Sounds practice sheets, 28 Ditty practice sheets, parent information booklets and 8 Speedy Green Words slideshows. These free resources will all be added to the Read Write Inc. page on Oxford Owl for Home over the coming weeks.
