Year 1 Phonics Screening Check
The statutory Year 1 Phonics Screening Check which will take place during the week 7th—11th June 2021 Please ensure that your child is in school during this week.
The check is a list of 40 words which children will read one-to-one with Mrs Jackson, deputy headteacher. It will assess phonics skills and knowledge learned through Reception and Year 1.
It will check that your child can:
- Sound out and blend graphemes in order to read simple words e.g. n-igh-t
- Read phonically decodable one-syllable and two-syllable words, e.g. cat, sand, windmill.
- Read a selection of nonsense words which are referred to as ‘pseudo words’.
