  • If your child requires anti-sickness medicine, please do not forget to give this to them before they arrive at school.
  • Rain is currently forecast throughout the day on Thursday, so children MUST bring a water proof with them.

Phonics Screening


In June, all 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 has been preparing the children for their Phonics Screening Test. Please see the documents below for any information you need to know about the Phonics Screening.



We encourage parents to read with their child every day. We will focus heavily on phonics and reading throughout the academic year, but reading at home is also really important for your child. Children will have an opportunity to change their reading book every morning when they arrive at school, providing they have read it, so please ensure you write in their reading record every time you hear them read. Please see the documents below for guidance on hearing your child read at home.
