Phonics Year One
In Year One the children continue their Phonics journey. In EYFS (Reception) they will have learnt the Phase 2 and Phase 3 sounds.
There are many ways that you can support your child with their Phonics acquisition:
1. Hear your child read lots at home (at least 4 days a week)
2. Practise the sounds they have been taught regularly at home (e.g. flashcards and sound mat games)
3. Support your child with their weekly Phonics homework
4. Play games (e.g. snakes and ladders, bowling and BINGO)
Phonics Screening Check
In Year One all the children take part in the Phonics Screening Check. This is usually in the month of June. The Phonics Screening Check tests their phonic knowledge by getting the children to read a range of real and alien words.
To help the children get used to the Phonics Screening Check they can use this help sheet and game.
Phonics Information Sessions
Each year we provide parent sessions for Year One parents to learn about Phonics and how to support their children at home.
