Phonics Hero

Phonics Hero

Today in Rimu we started our trial of Phonics Hero.  This online programme is being used to support our knowledge of phonics.  We hope to apply this learning in our Reading and Writing.


So what do we think so far?

Emily- It is fun and is helping to improve my phonics skills.

Nevaeh- It is helping me spell.

Sophie- It is not too hard and not too easy.

We will continue to use this programme and hopefully we will be more confident with our Reading and Writing.

  1. Kia ora Rimu Class,
    My name is Tania and I am one of the Manaiakalani Outreach Facilitators. I live in Whangarei, a long way from where you live in Christchurch. Have any of you ever been to Whangarei or the top of the North Island? I am lucky enough to be organising Tuhi Mai Tuhi Atu so will be able to check out your blog regularly and leave you comments. Phonics Hero sounds like a fun programme, I'm glad it's not to hard and not too easy:-) Great to hear it's fun too Emily. Keep up the great work sharing your learning.
    Ngā mihi nui
