Read Write Inc. Phonics – learning to read at home


Films for children

We're streaming three, short Speed Sounds lessons for children to watch at home every weekday on our YouTube channel.

Each lesson is ten minutes long and available for 24 hours.

Repeats of lessons streamed up until Friday 3rd April will be shown during the Easter holidays (6th - 17th April excluding Bank Holidays).

    • Set 1 Speed Sounds 9.30 am (BST) - for children in Nursery and Reception and children who are new to English

    • Set 2 Speed Sounds 10.00 am - for children in Reception that can read Set 1 Speed Sounds and for children in Year 1 and 2

    • Set 3 Speed Sounds 10.30 am - for children in Year 1 and 2 that can read Set 2 Speed Sounds

After the Easter holidays, we will:

  • Continue Sets 1, 2 and 3 Speed Sounds lessons

  • Add lessons to help children read words with Set 1 Speed Sounds and spell words with Set 1, 2 and 3 sounds

Don't worry if you miss a lesson. Once each set has been shown, we will replay one a day from each set.

Storytime with Nick

From Monday 20th April, we are releasing Storytime with Nick; films of well-loved stories read by Nick Cannon, a trained actor, teacher and trainer and a wonderful storyteller.

Three stories will be published each week on our YouTube channel and are ideal for Nursery, Reception and KS1 children. So far, we are filming stories by Jeanne Willis, Tom Percival, Jill Murphy, Cressida Cowell and Claire Freedman.

Most films will be available for the period of school closure.
