Phonics Screening Check

In year 1 your child will have a Phonics Screening Check. Above you will find a PowerPoint with the sounds on and words that contain this sound. There are also 3 lists of real words and nonsense words. The phonics screening is a test to ascertain your child's ability to decode/sound out words which is why some words are real words and some words are nonsense words. Some words have to be nonsense words as your child will not recognise these words and will need to use their decoding skills to sound them out to read them. Please practise decoding/sounding out words at home. Below is a video with more information about the phonics screening.
