Reading at Home

It is important that you read as much as possible to and with your child. When children become more capable readers they develop the skill of word recognition. However, it is essential in Year 1 that children continue to practise good sounding out and blending, so they don’t fall into the trap of guessing the wrong word. This will also prepare them well for their end of year Phonics Screening test.

Year 1 Phonics screening Check Information for Parents

 

How will the children know which words are ‘alien’ (nonsense) words?

The made-up ‘alien’ words are always presented with a picture of an alien, so the children know that they are not real words that they might recognise. They are very familiar with this concept.

 

How will the phonics screening be administered?

Each child is taken through the screening check by a teacher on a 1:1 basis. This will be in a quiet area and there is not a time limit.

 

Will we be told about our child’s results?

The results of the check will be issued in the end of year reports.

 

What is the pass mark?

The standard threshold pass mark for this year’s phonics screening check will be published after the children have sat the check. Last year the pass mark was 32 out of 40.

 

What happens if my child doesn’t pass the phonics screening check?

Any child that does not reach the standard threshold will sit the 2020 screening check when they are in year 2, with the following year’s cohort of year 1s.

 

When will the phonics screening take place?

The government requires that the check must be taken during the week commencing 10th June. So it is important that no holidays are taken during this time.

 

How can we support our child out of school?

Play lots of sound and listening games with your child. An excellent website for this: 

All phonics phases are covered on this website.

Information for Parents: The Phonics Screening Check

The phonics screening check is a short, simple test taken by Year 1 children in England each June to assess their reading ability. Parents can watch our short video below to find out what happens during the check and why it's useful.
Please note that we are not a Read Write Inc school, so the video is accurate until 1 min 40 sec.

You will find the following sound mats useful this year. By the end of this year we will have learnt all of these sounds in Phonics.
