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

  • Why is the character doing that?
  • Can you retell the story?
