About RILL

The Covid-19 pandemic led to a gap in children's learning, and forced schools to adopt a remote learning approach. To assist in this endeavour, our language and literacy programme teaches core literacy skills with an emphasis on a fun, pupil-led experience.

Our teaching team received intensive training on how to deliver RILL lessons using a positive and constructive approach to the online learning experience. The materials are specifically adapted to an online environment, making use of multiple interactive elements such as moving .gifs, videos, sound effects and games. Each lesson lasts about 40 minutes, and lessons are delivered several times a week over several weeks.

The programme comprises 16-20 lessons, delivered via Microsoft Teams and OneNote. Synchronous and asynchronous versions are available.

The main components of each lesson are:

1. Story reading with vocabulary development

2. Vocabulary-based word games

3. Spelling activities.

As the child progresses through the program, they write two stories of their own, which they then illustrate.


We have developed Welsh and English versions of RILL.
