Y1 Phonics Screening Presentation 2024


The Phonics Screening Check will take place in June 2024. 

It was lovely to welcome many of you to our information event. The power point is now available to view on this page for those that missed it, or want to look over the information again.  

An example of ‘alien’ or ‘nonsense’ words is also available to download.  

There are several videos referred to in the power point. These can be accessed via the Little Wandle website ‘parents page’:

Phonics Play 

This is a very popular website that the children have used in school. The children will be familiar with the website and its games. Some of our favourite games are: 

  • Buried Treasure 

  • Dragons Den 

  • Picnic on Pluto 

These games are available for free.   


If you have any questions about the Phonics Screening Check, or any aspect of phonics, please do speak to your child’s class teacher, or our Phonics Lead, Louise Pitt.
