Phonics Screening - Year 1 & 2

Phonic screening is a test that is a National expectation. It tests the children on their phonic knowledge and gives a score that is measured Nationally. As a school we support the children in this and try to make it fun. This score is used to judge how well they can blend sounds and develop this to become fluent readers. We use a scheme called letters and sounds within school to teach this. Regular meetings are held to support you in your knowledge of phonics and how you can help.
