Preparing for the Phonics Screening in Willow and Maple – 7.6.17

We have been working really hard in our Phonics lessons, sound talking a variety of real and nonsense words. We have been spotting different sounds in books, playing sound talking games and reminding ourselves of all the different sounds we have learnt.

Next week, the Year 1 children will be completing the national Phonics Screening Test. They will be asked to read 40 words, some real some nonsense. They are used to this format as we regularly practise.

Don’t forget the Phonics pack we sent to everyone back in March if you  want to check your children can say each sound and look at our website for useful tips.
