Phonics screening

Phonics screening information for Year 1 parents

In Year One, the children will take a Phonics Screening assessment in June. The children will complete a reading test to show how they blend phonemes together to create real and nonsense words.  An evening parent information meeting will be held to provide more information about this. We follow the Little Wandle scheme, to develop phonics, reading and writing skills.
