In Year 1 children are expected to know the following sounds.  At Morton Trentside we follow the Read Write Inc scheme to learn these.


Speed sounds


Towards the end of Year 1 your child will complete a phonics screening test

What will it check?

It will check that your child can:

  • Sound out and blend graphemes in order to read simple words.
  • Read phonically decodable one-syllable and two-syllable words, e.g. cat, sand, windmill.
  • Read a selection of nonsense words which are referred to as pseudo words
