To keep children being able to practise their phonics, we will upload a copy of a story from each colour group for you to help your child read at home each week.  Remember to help children with the green words and tricky red words and to keep reading these stories over the week to help children build fluency.

We also upload weekly newsletters to help you with any further information for that week - we hope it is useful!

There are also daily lessons from Read Write Inc and from Letters and Sounds.

Daily virtual speed sound lessons for children 

From Monday 23rd March  Read Write Inc. Phonics are scheduling 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 (For children in reception and red phonic groups)
  • Set 2 Speed Sounds at 10.00 am and again at 1.00 pm (For children in green to pink phonic groups)
  • Set 3 Speed Sounds at 10.30 am and again at 1.30 pm (For children in pink to grey phonic groups)

Please note: the films are streamed live and won’t be available at other times.

The lessons will be streamed on Ruth Miskin Training Youtube Channel:

They are also releasing a film of a poem for Reception and Year 1 children to join in with at 2.00 pm every day. The poems will be available on YouTube to watch again and again.

This is great opportunity for children to learn these by heart! Please encourage the children to watch and learn these poems (older children too) as we know the children will love them!
