This week year 1 and some year 2 children have been taking the year 1 phonics screening check. This check tests the children’s ability to blend sounds to spell out single words. The children must read a mixture of real and nonsense words.
The children who have sat the check so far, have really impressed their teachers with their determination to do well. A bout of chicken pox, which currently seems to be doing the rounds in year 1 will lead to some children completing this check next week. Well done all!
