Read Write Inc

At Hillcroft, we use the synthetic phonics programme Read Write Inc. This is a very structured system which allows teachers to accurately and confidently assess pupils' phonic awareness at each stage of their learning. Whilst it is rigorous, it is also fun. Children learn new sounds with Fred the Frog and learn to read with their peers at a stage appropriate level. For more info, please visit the Read Write Inc website:

Daily lessons for children

We are excited to announce that from Monday 23rd March we are 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.

We 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!
