Phonics Screening at Year One

The National phonics screening check is a statutory assessment that was introduced in 2012 to all Year One pupils and is a quick and easy check of your child's phonic knowledge.  It comprises of a list of 40 real words and nonsense words.  It will assess the phonic skills and knowledge learnt through Reception and Year One.  Your child will read one-to-one with their teacher.  Your child will read up to 4 words per page and the check will last approximately 10-15 minutes.  They will be asked to 'sound out' a word and blend the sounds together.  The check is very similar to tasks the children already complete during phonic lessons.  Below are some examples of previous years words.
