Phonics Screen

The phonics screening check is taken individually by all children in Year 1 in England. It is designed to give teachers and parents information on how your child is progressing in phonics. This year the screen will be taken on the week commencing Monday 6th June. The screen will be taken over the course of the week. For more information on how the screen will be administered click here


How can you support your child?

There are many different ways in which you can help to support your child's progress with phonics.In fact, you are already offering a good level of support by simply listening to your child read their reading book as often as possible. You could also begin to go over the green words at the begining of your child's reading book more often.

There are some fantastic resources available online such as the Oxford Owl website that will help you to further your understanding of what phonics is. We have also included some helpful resources in the 'files to dowload' section of the year one class page that you can use with your children. If you would like any of the documents printing out please let your class teacher know. 

Another easy way to slip some extra phonics into your child's say is by watching alphablocks! 


General Infomation


Children need to arrive in PE kits on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Children have dance lesson on Tuesday and outdoor PE lesson with the Manchester City coach on Wednesday. 

Reading books

Book bags need to be returned every day. This is to ensure your child can read to adults in school. We encourage children to re-read their books as this will improve fluency and comprehension. Children will also receive logins to BugClub were they will be able to sign in to access e-books. Reading books will be changed on Mondays and Fridays. 


Homework will be sent out on Friday and is due back on Wednesday.


From the Spring term onwards we will send home 5 spellings each week to learn.


Water bottles need to be provided. Please can you ensure that your child's name is written on their jumpers or cardigans.
