Year 1


Great news!
Read write inc is doing live lessons daily!

Daily lessons for children
Read write inc are excited to announce that from Monday 23rd March they are scheduling Read Write Inc. Phonics lessons on Facebook and YouTube for children to watch at home.

They will release three short Speed Sound lessons with one of their trainers every day for the next two weeks. The films 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
(I have just checked both their facebook and you tube page and all 3 lessons plus their poetry reading are available to watch for the reminder of today).
I would recommend all year 1 children watching set 2 for a revisit and set 3 to learn new sounds.
Some of the sounds may seem easy for your child as they are all at a different journey with their reading but a bit of revisiting and reviewing sounds they currently know will not do any harm!
They will also release a film of a teacher reading a poem for Reception and Year 1 children to join in with at 2.00 pm every day. The poems will be available to watch again and again on YouTube.

A great opportunity for children to learn these by heart!

Parents can find these on their Facebook page (Ruth Miskin training) or their YouTube channel.
