End of Year 1 Expectations
Phonics Screening Check- June 2022
In June, all Year 1 children will undertake a statutory "Phonics Screening Check". The phonics screening check contains 40 words divided into two sections of 20 words. Both sections contain a mixture of real words and nonsense words. It is designed to assess children's ability to segment and blend taught phonic sounds. The nonsense words allow the check to focus purely on decoding phonic knowledge. The words in the screening incorporate phonics skills acquired by the children in both Year One and Reception.
The video here shows you the correct articulation of all 44 phonemes.
Year 1 have completed Phase 3 Phonic sounds and are currently working on Phase 5 Phonics. Please see the mats below.

- Spelling Homework
Each week your child will bring home some spellings to practise at home. Please help your child learn their weekly spellings. We have a systematical approach to how we teach spellings and it is essential that children keep up with the pace in which we teach these. Please ensure that you help your child to practise the spellings as well as the reading of the words we send home, to make sure your child doesn’t fall behind.
Tips for helping your child to spell
Shut their eyes and try to picture the word in their head
Repeat the words several times over
Write out the word a few times
See if the word reminds them of any others which they can spell
Compare their version with the correct spelling and, if theirs is wrong, concentrate on the bit they got wrong
Reading is essential for all of our children to help them become independent lifelong learners. Please continue to read with your child daily.
