This week the children in Year One would have completed their ‘Phonics screening check’. This is a simple reading task where your child would use their phonics skills to decode 40 words; half of the words being real and half nonsense words. The phonic check contains the sounds covered in phases 2,3 and 5 of the phonics programme.
Below are examples of previous phonics checks to try at home. There is also a ‘Reading Robot’ game the children can play on Phonics Play.
