Year 1 Phonics Screening Check


The check is a list of 40 words which children will read one -to-one with their class teacher, it is a statutory test done by all children across the country.  It will assess phonics skills and knowledge learned through Reception and Year 1.

It will check that your child can:

  • Sound out and blend graphemes in order to read simple words e.g. n-igh-t
  • ·Read phonically decodable one-syllable and two-syllable words, e.g. cat, sand, windmill.

  • ·Read a selection of nonsense words which are referred to as ‘pseudo words’.
