Year 1 phonics screening

In the Summer Term, children in Year 1 will be assessed with the Phonics Screening. The purpose of the phonics screening check is to confirm that all the children have learned phonics decoding to an age appropriate standard.

Year 2 SATS

In Year 2 the children will be assessed in line with statutory assessment tests (SATS). This will take place in May in the Summer Term. These tests are a tool for teachers to help them measure your child’s performance and identify their needs as they move into Key Stage 2. We aim that pupils may not know they are taking them and will incorporate them into our everyday classroom activities.


Home Learning

  • Homework will be weekly spellings (Year 2) red words (Year 1), reading and Numbots
  • Spellings will be given for each half-term. Children will learn about the spelling rule in lessons each week and be tested on Fridays.
  • Red Words will be tested every Friday. Once the children are fluently reading the words they have in their packs, children will then be given 4 new words.
  • We expect children to read regularly at home during the week. Children who are in Read Write Inc Phonics groups are expected to read the decodable paper books every day and they will also read them in school. Children are then also encouraged to read the book bag book that goes alongside their decodable book. These two books link and will have similar high frequency words in along with the same sound which the children will be learning in class. Finally the children also have a richer read book. This book is not related to the other two books but allows the children to read some of the lovely books we have in school.
  • In KS1 we still advise children read to an adult, part of the KS1 curriculum is to be able to confidently read aloud and therefore we ask that parents write in the children’s reading diaries so the adults in class are aware of what has been read.
  • Book bags will be changed every Monday and Thursday. On Mondays the Phonetically decodable and book bag books will be changed and then richer reads will be changed once they have been read whether that be on a Monday or Thursday.


If you would like to discuss anything with us, please do not hesitate to ring or drop in after school for a chat.
