Phonics Screening Check The Science..! The Alphabetic Code English is an alphabetic language

There are 26 letters in the English language There are approximately 44 sounds (phonemes) in the English language

Combined they make in excess of 140 letter combinations (graphemes) Terminology 1 Phoneme the smallest unit of sound in a word. Grapheme a letter or group of letters that represent a phoneme.

Blending merging the individual phonemes together to read a word all the way through. Children should sound out each phoneme, not letter when reading unfamiliar words. Segmenting hearing and saying the individual phonemes within words. In order to spell, children need to segment a word into its component phonemes

and choose a grapheme to represent each phoneme. Terminology 2 Digraphs two letters representing one phoneme

Consonant digraphs: ll ss ff zz ng Vowel digraphs: ai ee ew oa ar

will administer the Year One This check is statutory for all maintained schools. All pupils in our current Year One at Nutfield Church Primary School will take the Screening Check. The Phonics Screening Check is designed to show how well your child can use the phonics skills they have learned up to the end of Year One,

and to identify pupils who need extra phonics help. The screening check assesses whether your child is able to read/decode at an appropriate standard. The Department for Education defines the checks as short, light-touch assessments that take about four to nine minutes to complete. What does the Phonics Screening Check consist of?

The check consists of 40 words that your child will be asked to read one-on-one with Miss Johnston. There will be 20 real words and 20 pseudo-words (non-words). Non-words (nonsense words, pseudo words) are a collection of letters that will follow phonics rules your child has been taught, but dont mean

anything. Each of the non-words is presented with a picture of a monster/alien. Your child will need to apply their knowledge of phonemes to read these correctly, showing that they understand the phonics rules behind them. tox jound

Standards and Testing Agencys check administration guidance. Schools are monitored by unannounced monitoring visitors from local authorities in order to ensure that administration of the checks are accurate. All schools will report their pupil-level phonics screening check data to their Local Authority.

The threshold mark is communicated to schools by the start of July, after the test has been taken and all schools have submitted their pupils scores. Your child will be scored against a national standard, and their result will indicate whether or not they fall below or within this standard. Threshold Mark. Between 2013 - 2016 the "pass threshold" was 32,

which meant that children had to read at least 32 words out of 40 correctly. At Nutfield Church Primary School we pride ourselves on our phonics teaching. Our Ofsted report published in October 2015 said Younger pupils quickly learn the letters and the sounds these make. Results in the Year 1 phonics screening check are above the national average. In June 2016, 97% of our Year 1 pupils passed the threshold.
