On 15th January we held a Phonics session for Y1 children and their parents/carers. Mrs Wells kindly provided a presentation to parents/carers to explain how the screening checks are carried out and then parents joined the children in their phonics groups to see how phonics are taught in the classroom using their whiteboards.
We hope parents/carers found this session useful and as always any questions or concerns please contact the school or speak to your child’s teacher. Parents/Carers who attended this session were given a 2016 screening booklet as an example, if you were unable to attend but would like one please ask your child’s teacher. All Y1 children will be bringing home a Sound Mat to practise at home too.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank parents/carers for the support and encouragement.
