We hope you have a lovely rest over the holidays! We will just be sending home some words similar to a phonics check to go through with your child (Year 1). These are a list of real and alien/nonsense words that test your child’s reading/phonics skills. The children will be familiar with them as we do lots of practice in school. For all the words, we encourage the children to do find ‘special friends’, ‘fred talk’ and then say the word. There is also lots of guidance online if you search ‘year 1 phonics check’. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to see one of us.

We will also be sending home a sheet on plants so if you are out on a walk, please can you encourage your child to point out some wild flowers!

Many thanks
