Dear Parents/Carers,

As you may be aware, all current Year 2 children missed out on the Year 1 phonics screening that should have taken place in June. This will now happen towards the end of November.  The children will bring home a previous test to help you understand what is involved in the phonics check. Please look at this with your children. There are pictures of  'aliens' on the nonsense words, please point out the creature and emphasise that this means the word is not a real word. Encourage your child to look for and underline the 'special friends', sound the word then blend the word.

I have added links to videos that will support both you and the children with accurate pronunciation of the sounds, and on how to blend the sounds to say the full word. There are also extra resources for you to use on the class page.  If you have any queries, please get in touch.

Kind regards,

Mrs Bunce
