The phonics screening check is a quick assessment of your child’s phonics knowledge. Children are presented with 20 words and 20 non-words and will be asked to read one-on-one with a teacher. It helps schools make sure that your child is making sufficient progress with phonics skills to read words, and are on track to become fluent readers who can enjoy reading for pleasure and for learning.
As only the second post of our new LRUK blog I thought it only right to introduce you to a new member of our team; Jo, our Educational Product Development Coordinator, is already commonly referred to as our in-house ‘education expert’! Jo was a teacher before she joined the Learning Resources family and she already provides us with invaluable teacher tips, educational advice and new product ideas.
