We want children to continue learning to read and have familiar routines during this difficult time for families. We're delighted to announce that there will be daily Read Write Inc. phonics lessons scheduled on the Ruth Miskin Facebook and YouTube channels for children to watch at home. The three short Speed Sound lessons, listed below, will be run by one of the Read Write Inc trainers every day up until Friday 3rd April.

Please note that the films will be available at the times below, they will be streamed live but also available for 24 hours on the Ruth Miskin Phonics Youtube Channel

  • 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

Ruth Miskin Training Inc will also be 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!
