Please note: the films are available for a 24 hour period so don't worry if you forget to watch one on the live streaming.


This is a super opportunity to continue your child’s phonics practice as we would in school and I strongly urge you all to watch them. For children in year 1, the set 3 sounds are the ones we are currently practising. However, we often revisit set 2 so the children could watch this too; perhaps one in the morning and one in the afternoon?

Parents, feel free to join in the phonics fun too!
