We hope you enjoyed joining in with the fabulous Read write inc lessons and challenged yourself with the word time and spelling videos. Today's videos are below. Again please follow the set 1 speed sounds lesson if your child is still learning the set 1 sounds and if your child can recognise all the set 1 sounds easily please follow the set 2 speed sounds lesson. If you can have a go at both the word time and spelling lessons. You don't need to print anything off for these lessons just watch the video and have a piece of paper and a pencil for the spellings lesson that's all you need- enjoy!
