Jolly Phonics

  In Year 1 all children across the country are expected to sit the Phonics Screening test. This will take place in Summer term. Throughout the year, your child will be taught the sounds they need to know in order to be able to read the words on the test.  For the test the children are asked to read real and 'alien' words to test their phonics knowledge. To help prepare your child there are some links to games and resources below. You can use these to practise blending sounds together. The children have been exposed to these games and know how to use them.  

Dinosaur Egg Phonics

Ob and Bob

Buried Treasure

Dragon's Den

 

Here are the sounds the children will be taught:

           Important Things to Remember:

 

 

Reading Records should be given in on a Monday. They will be returned to you

on a Wednesday. Please remember to sign your child's reading record when

you have read with them so that we know the book needs to be

replaced with a new one. Thank you. 

     Please keep practising reading EVERY DAY at home. 

Library books should be returned on your class’ designated library day:

Pink Class - Monday

Violet Class - Tuesday 

Purple Class - Thursday 

Books will be sent home on the following day. 

                                  

PE is on Wednesday. Children can come to school dressed in their P.E Kits. Please make sure your child's name is on all clothes.      

Homework is due every Thursday. Your child must complete their spellings and maths homework every week and 1 item from the Homework grid every other week. Please click here to view the Homework grid for this term.
