Phonics Check

What is the Phonics Screening Check?
Children in Year 1 throughout the country will all be taking part in a phonics screening check during the same week in June. 

What Happens During the Screening?
The test contains 40 words. Each child will sit one to-one and read each word aloud to a teacher. The list of words the children read is a combination of 20 real words and 20 pseudo words (nonsense words).

Pseudo Words (Nonsense Words)

The pseudo words will be shown to your child with a picture of an alien. This provides the children with a context for the pseudo word which is independent from any existing vocabulary they may have. Pseudo words are included because they will be new to all pupils; they do not favour children with a good vocabulary knowledge or visual memory of words.

We are very lucky in Year 1 to have Year 5 buddies. We enjoy playing with them, reading with them and chatting to them. We know our buddies are always there to help us! 'Nurturing our friendships'



In Science we have been learning about our senses. We had great fun exploring our senses. 'Working together'
