“Hand in hand with God,we live love and learn together.”
“By God’s grace, we learn to loveand love to learn.”
At the end of Year 1 children will take part in a phonics screening test. The aim of this is to ensure that children are able to apply their reading skills to read 'alien' and real words. To support children with their reading and writing skills and to prepare for the Phonics Screening Test we teach a daily phonics lesson. Each session the children revise sounds they have already learnt and learn a new sound. They are then given opportunities to apply the sounds and consolidate their learning. The majority of children will learn Phase 5 phonic sounds over the course of the year whilst revising the sounds they learnt in Phase 2, 3 and 4.
Below are websites the children can access that have games and activities linked to each phonic phase and the sounds found within them. Have fun!
