“Together We Grow”


I have added a short video about the Year One Phonics Screening test. It will help to give you a better understanding of the check which will take place in June this year.


Below the videos, there is a link to the .GOV website where you can look at past phonics screening papers and can also watch a video about how they are administered. 


I hope you find them useful.
