Year 1 Phonics

During June each year, children all over the UK will take a reading exercise called the phonics screening. This test consists of 40 words; 20 real words and 20 'nonsense' or 'alien' words which children use their phonics to read. The children do not need to be able to spell the words they simple have to read them.

Below is some more information about how the check is taken and how you can support your child at home in preparation. 


We will be holding a phonics screening information session later in year where you will find out more information. In the meantime, please continue to read with your child.
