The Staff In Year 1 are:

We will be doing PE on various days throughout the week and so ask that children keep their PE kit in school so that they are always prepared!

 A PE kit consists of: 
House colour top
Shorts/leggings/jogging bottoms
PE pumps

We ask that all items of clothing are labelled including PE bags! This saves anything getting misplaced!



Please make sure you send your child to school with their book bag each day! Books will be changed weekly- please ensure you sign the Reading Record book when you have read with your child. We really see a difference in the progress of children who are helped at home with their reading.


Homework will be sent home each Friday please return books by Thursday at the latest. Please remember to complete homework in pencil! We also ask that homework is completed by the children please! As part of the homework each week we will send home a list of spellings for the children to learn. Please help your child with these!

The Year 1 phonics screening check will be taking place in July 2020- date tbc.




What is the Y1 Phonics screening check?

The Phonics Screening Check is meant to show how well your child can use the phonics skills they’ve learned up to the end of Year 1, and to identify students who need extra phonics help. The Department for Education defines the checks as “short, light-touch assessments” that take about four to nine minutes to complete.

What’s on it?

The checks consist of 40 words and non-words that your child will be asked to read one-on-one with a teacher. Non-words (or nonsense words, or pseudo words) are a collection of letters that will follow phonics rules your child has been taught, but don’t mean anything – your child will need to read these with the correct sounds to show that they understand the phonics rules behind them.

The 40 words and non-words are divided into two sections – one with simple word structures of three or four letters, and one with more complex word structures of five or six letters. The teacher administering the check with your child will give them a few practice words to read first – including some non-words – so they understand more about what they have to do. Each of the non-words is presented with a picture of a monster / alien, as if the word were their name (and so your child doesn't think the word is a mistake because it doesn't make sense!).

You can download the Department for Education's official Year 1 Phonics screening check past paper from 201220132014201520162017 and 2018 to get an idea of what your child will be asked to do.


Does my child have to take it?

Yes – all students in Year 1 in England must take the Screening Check.

What will my child’s score mean?

Your child will be scored against a national standard, and the main result will be whether or not they fall below, within or above this standard.

In 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018 the "pass threshold" was 32, which means children had to read at least 32 words out of 40 correctly. The threshold mark is communicated to schools at the end of June, after the test has been taken, so that teachers can mark the Check.

You will be told how your child did, but schools’ results will not be published. If your child’s score falls below the standard, they will be given extra phonics help and can re-take the Phonics screening check in Year 2.
