Tottington Primary School follows the Little Wandle Revised Letters & Sounds Programme for the teaching and learning of Phonics, starting during the Early Years Foundation Stage, with the aim of producing fluent readers by the time they leave Year 1.

 

 

The Phonics Screening Check.

The Phonics Screening Check is an assessment at the end of Year 1 to confirm whether individual children have learnt phonetic decoding to an appropriate standard. It enables schools to identify children who need additional help, so ensure they are given support to improve their reading skills. Children who do not 'pass' the check in Year 1 are able to retake it in Year 2.

 

It is a Statutory Requirement to carry out the screening check.

The check is a short, simple screening check which consists of a list of 40 words and pseudo words (non-words), which the child reads one-to-one with their class teacher.

The Phonics Screening Check takes place in June.
