Year 1 and Year 2
Miss Cridland teaches Beech Class.
The children in Year 1 and Year are in Key Stage 1 and follow the National Curriculum for this age group.
Year 1 phonics screening check
In Year 1, the children will all take part in the phonics screening check to assess the progress they have made with their phonics knowledge. The check will take place in June when your child will read 40 words out loud to a teacher. You’ll find out how your child did, and their teacher will use this information to assess whether he or she needs extra help with reading. If children do not pass the phonics check in Year 1, they will re-take it when they are in Year 2.
Key stage 1
Currently children in Year 2 are assessed in the summer term to measure their progress across Key Stage 1.
Key stage 1 tests cover:
- English reading
- English grammar, punctuation and spelling
Your child will take the tests in May. The class teacher will be happy to speak with you regarding any questions you have about the assessments.
