The children will be partaking in the Phonics Screening during the week of 8th June 2020.

The children have daily phonics lessons and they will be assessed every term. These assessments help us to cater for your child’s need, giving them extra provision if necessary.

Phonics homework gets sent home every week in a red book giving them a challenge to complete. This normally relates to the sounds we have been learning in class that week.

Reading books

Please use the Superstar Reading book to note down which page your child has read to and any difficulties.

We have Year 6 Champion Readers who read with children after lunch every day and we will have volunteers to help with reading. If you know anyone who would be happy to volunteer, please let the School Office know. 

Homework will be on a sticker or clipped into Home-School Contact books.
