Year 1 Phonics Screening Check
The Phonics Screening Check in June is for Year 1 children and Year 2 children who didn't complete it last year. It is an informal check to help the teacher assess how well the children's phonic skills are progrssing and whether they are gaining the skills they need in order to be able to read words.
There is a good explanation for it if you follow this link Oxford Owl Phonics Screening and below is a leaflet about it as well as some examples of the test you can practise with your child at home - the words with pictures of a alien are 'nonsense' words and the children have to really apply their phonics skills to be able to read them.
We really enjoyed our trip to Kirkley Hall Zoological Gardens. We learned lots of facts about different animals. There were peacocks everywhere!
The Germ Busters! came to visit KS1 and we learned how to wash our hands properly.
