Year 1 Phonics Screening Check
There is a national assessment for Year 1 children to assess their early reading (phonic) skills. The test takes place in June.
To read more, click the link below:
If your child reads at least 3 times a week, they are a Reading Star and are entered into a prize draw where they have the chance to win a reward!
Reading stars are a way of rewarding and encouraging parents and children to read together on a regular basis. Children love to win a prize and it really encourages and motivates them to improve their reading whilst at home.
Please read with your children every day (or at least 3 times a week) and return their signed reading record and book to school every day.
