With the Year 1 National Phonics Screening Check fast approaching, you may wish to do some extra reading and or phonics practise with your child at home.
The check consists of 40 words; 20 real words and 20 pseudo (nonsense) words that will check your child’s ability to decode words using learnt phonics sounds. Your children will read these words one to one with their class teacher. More information about the check can be found via this video link for parents:
