Phonics

Children in Reception and Key Stage 1 follow the ‘Letters and Sounds’ programme.  Children in Reception also use ‘Jolly Phonics’ actions to go with the sounds.

We use a combination of reading schemes. These include Oxford Reading Tree, Floppy’s Phonics  and Rigby Star. These give a variety of fiction and non–fiction books to develop children’s reading range.

Our daily phonics sessions are fun, involving lots of speaking, listening and games. The emphasis is on children’s active participation. They learn to use their phonic knowledge for reading and writing activities and in their independent play.

Phonics Screening Check

What is the phonics screening check?

The phonics screening check is a short, light-touch assessment to confirm whether individual children have learnt phonic decoding to an appropriate standard.

It will identify the children who need extra help so they are given support by their school to improve their reading skills. They will then be able to retake the check so that schools can track children until they are able to decode.

Who is it for?

The screening check is for all Year 1 pupils in maintained schools, academies and Free Schools – and children in Year 2 who previously did not meet the standard of the check in Year 1.

The link below take you to the Dfe information page about the check, should you have any questions, as always we are happy to help.
