"Cancellation of the phonics screening check in June 2020 means incoming year 2 pupils did not take the check in year 1. In the 2020/21 academic year only, it is statutory for schools to administer a past version of the phonics screening check to year 2 pupils during the second half of the 2020 autumn term and return results to the LA.
Year 2 pupils who meet the expected standard in phonics in the autumn check will not be required to complete any further statutory assessments in phonics. Year 2 pupils who do not meet the expected standard in the autumn check will be expected to take the statutory check in June 2021, alongside year 1 pupils."
The phonics screen consists of 40 words - some are real and some are 'alien' words that are designed to check if your child can use their phonics to read unknown words. The alien words have a picture of an alien next to them so the children know they don't have to make sense.
Below there are some links that will help you practise reading words for the phonics screening. If you are unsure how to pronounce any of the sounds in wonds, there are some videos on our you tube channel. The links can be found on the school website https://www.portwayi.derby.sch.uk/phonics-4/
