Year 1 Phonics
Sounds Taught in Year One
How We Teach Phase 5 in School
Click on the picture to visit the Little Wandle website, where you will find videos which show you how to pronounce the sounds for Phases 2, 3 and 5. Notice how the children don’t add an ‘uh’ sound at the end, so they say: ‘t’ not ‘tuh’.
Use the information sheets below to help your child when learning Phase 5 sounds and tricky words.
Year One Phonics Screening Check
The Phonics Screening Check takes place in year 1, usually in June. Children throughout the country will all take the test during the same week. If they are absent from school during that week, they will take it within the specified time frame. Children in Year 2 will also take the check if they did not achieve the required outcome when in year 1 or if they have not taken the test before.
