The phonics screening check is a statutory test for Year 1 children that will take place during the week beginning June 15th.
This phonics screening check is a booklet made up of four words on each page (i.e. 40 words altogether) which pupils read 1:1 with Miss Craig. The check is made up of a mixture of real and pretend words (also known as pseudo/ alien words). The main aim of the phonics screening check is to check whether individual children have learned phonic decoding to an appropriate standard. Children who have not reached this standard by the end of Year 1 will receive support to improve their phonic decoding skills and can then retake the screening check at the end of Year 2. The pass mark will be released on the 29th June 2015 and Parents will be notified shortly after this.
Support packs have already been sent out but if you would like any additional resources or advice please let me know.
Thank you, Miss Craig
