Phonics screening

At the end of the year we will be doing our statutory year 1 phonics screening test. Below is some guidance on what the test involves.




Handwriting Practice

Common exception words

High Frequency words


As a school we follow the Scheme from white rose to aid our planning. on the website they have links to activities you can do at home that go alongside our learning at school






Phonics Play


The Phonics Play website is a useful site for children to play phonics games on. Many of the resources are free so have a good look around!

Read, Write, Inc.


Your child may still be learning phonics skills through our Read, Write, Inc programme. They will be regularly assessed to ensure that they have an appropriate level of challenge and are grouped accordingly. 

Please investigate the attached booklets which will give you an indication of what is being taught with each set of sounds and will give some useful tips for reading at home. 

Purple mash




As well as practicing the weekly spellings, your child could visit Spelling Shed and use the log in that they have been given to access further spellings resources and games.
