Phonics Screening

Phonics Screening 2022

In June, the children in Year 1 will sit their Phonics screening test.

This will involve the children using the sounds they have learnt in phonics lessons to decode and read a range of real words and 'alien' words (made up words).

The work we are doing in Read Write Inc. throughout the year will be preparing the children for their Phonics Screening Test.
