Summer Term 2
Home Learning for week commencing
Monday 13th July 2020
Dear children, parents/carers,
I hope Mrs Wright has reassured some of you a little last week over the phone. It was really nice to get an update on you all, especially those of you I haven't been able to see. I am missing all of you and your well being is still my priority. Although we may not be in physical contact with you all, please know that we are thinking of you and don't forget you can email for any help.
All of the English activities this week are linked to the new text 'The Ugly Sharkling'. Before we take a look at the story we are going to make our own predictions about what we think the story will be about.
In Maths, this week we will go back to concentrating on our basic arithmetic skills to check that we haven't forgotten how to add and subtract larger numbers.
In Science, we will continue to observe changes of the seasons and look out for signs of summer.
I hope you have been able to access the daily video links below to apply your phonics and learn with Rosie. If you only made the odd spelling mistake, well done as they were quite a challenge!
Continue to check daily for links to Phonics with Fred, but a reminder that each lesson is only available for 24 hours.
For all those still at home, keep safe everyone and please stay in touch,
Mrs Towell x

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.
