You may not be aware but, in year 1 the children have to complete and pass a Phonics Screening Test set by the Government in June. In this test children are required to read 20 real words and 20 fake words using all phonic sounds up to and including phase 5.
To aid children with their phonics skills nearer the time we will be sending home examples of the words they might be asked to read during the test.
Please don't worry about the test, as in previous years, the children have quite enjoyed it and are unaware of a test being carried out.
Please find the list below of all the sounds the children are expected to know (confidently) before June.
