This section is for posting high-quality photo examples of work from pupils, and quotes from children about the subject.

Please also reference the 5-minute starter work we do to help the children retain their knowledge and skills over time.


We use Little Wandle Letters and Sounds;  a complete systematic phonics programme, to teach reading.

Click on the link below to access resources to help you support your child with saying their sounds and writing their letters. There are also some useful videos so you can see how they are taught at school and feel confident about supporting their reading at home.


Year 1 Phonics Screening

The Y1 Phonics Screening Check will take place the week beginning Monday 6th June 2022.

A parental meeting will be arranged later on this term to explain more about the screening check and provide an opportunity to look at previous materials. Please call into school if you would like any further information how best to support your child's learning at home.  Thank you.
