We follow the Read Write Inc scheme of Phonics.
In Year 1, children undertake teh Phonics screening check. The phonics screening check is a short and simple assessment of phonic decoding. It consists of a list of 40 words, half real words and half non-words, which Year 1 children read to a teacher.
In order to help your child prepare for the Phonics Screening Check, here are some suggestions for activities that could easily be done at home
* Online games:
- Woodlands Literacy offers a wide range of Literacy games.
- Teach Your Monster to Read is a free website that supports learning to read at home. The website requires registration, but is free to use.
- Phonics Play has some games that are free to play online. Children have to sound out and blend words and decide whether they are alien words or real words.
