Reading & Phonics

In Autumn term 2, all Year 2 children will be required to complete the statutory phonics screening, just as they would have done in the summer term of Year 1. 

In preparation for this we have sent home an additional homework sheet for the children to complete. These sheets will be given out every Friday with the children’s spelling journals. These sheets will have both real words and ‘alien’ words on them. Please encourage your child to spot and underline the ‘special friends’ in the words before reading them.

The children are all working really hard during their phonics lessons in school and this additional practice is just there to ensure that they feel confident when faced with new and unfamiliar words.

Thank you all for you continued support.

Mrs Savage.
