Statutory Phonics Information

Children in year 1 sit a phonics screening check this will take place during the summer term. The phonics screening check is designed to confirm whether pupils have learnt phonic decoding to an appropriate standard.

 The children will be asked to read a mix of 40 words some will be real and some will be nonsense (made up alien words). Children have to use phonics to blend the words and read them clearly.

Reading At Home

Please make sure you read with your child at home EVERY night and sign their diary with the correct date. It is important that you read at home to support your child's learning at school. We will check reading books daily. 

Questions to ask your child 

  • Who is the author of this book?
  • Who is your favourite character and why?
  • What do you think will happen in the end?
  • Who is your favourite character?


At Haslam Park we believe that in order for children to achieve work must be done at home as well as at school. Please do the following with your child each week:

  • Read your reading book for at least 5 minutes every night
  • Practise our weekkly phonics sounds on Floppys Phonics by clicking the link on our class dojo page  
  • Practise weekly spelling on spelling shed -
