PHONICS SCREENING CHECK
As you are aware the phonics screen check will take place in June. Please check out the phonics resources in the useful links section to support your child’s learning.
Each Friday your child will be given about 6 spellings to learn and will be tested during a phonics session. The spellings will be from the Year 1 common exception word list as well as tricky words. Please help your child to write the words each day as this will help them learn the spellings.
Please bring blue reading folders to school every day. Children could be read with on any day, therefore it is important for books to be in school at all times. Individual readers can be heard at any time during the week. Please read little and often, a few pages to a whole book is plenty. Please use the coloured book marks to help improve your child’s comprehension and reading skills.
Year 1 have the opportunity to choose a library book. Please return the following week on your library day. Children will only get a library book if they return their books.
Please have both indoor and outdoor kit in school all week. The children will have gym or dance throughout the week and outdoor games on Tuesday afternoons. Please check all kit is named. Thank you.
