phonics home learning resources (Y1 only)

This page contains links to resources relating to the Read, Write, Inc. phonics scheme followed in school. 

These resources should be accessed every day by children in year 1, and compliment the physical resources sent home. 

For more information on our home learning expectations in phonics, please see the home learning tab on our class page.

To help our children to continue learning to read and have familiar routines during this difficult time for families, I am delighted to announce that Read, Write, Inc. are now publishing...

Daily virtual lessons for children

From Monday 23rd March we’re scheduling Read Write Inc. Phonics lessons on Facebook and YouTube for children to watch at home.

We will release three short Speed Sound lessons with one of our 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

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

Year 1 children should be accessing the SET 3 sounds lessons.

We’re 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. 

A great opportunity for children to learn these by heart!
