Phonics at The Meadows
Phonics in Key Stage 1
At the Meadows, a huge emphasis is placed on phonics in EYFS and Key Stage 1 in order to improve, reading, writing and spelling. The phonics programme used at The Meadows is called Little Wandle.
Phonics Screening Check
In year 1, children will sit a national Phonics Screening where the children have to read 20 real words and 20 ‘alien’ (pseudo) words. This is conducted in a very child-friendly way by the class teachers. At every parents evening you will be informed of your child’s progress in Phonics and at the end of Year 1 the school report will inform you if they have passed or not. If your child does not pass in Year 1 they will be given additional support throughout Year 2 to enable them to pass the next year. We hold a parents workshop on the Phonics Screening check during Spring term where you will gain further information on this.
