Year 2 Phonics Screening Check

Dear parents/ carers,

Your child has made super progress in their reading this year.

Let’s keep them reading this half-term for maximum success in the Phonics Screening Check next week.

Watch Virtual Classroom films

We’ll be sending links to: 

  1. Set 2 and/or Set 3 reading films to practise reading specific sounds and words
  2. Pinny Time films to practise reading sounds speedily
  3. ‘Special Friends, Fred Talk’ films for practice reading a range of new words.

The plan

  • Set aside 10 minutes to watch films with your child each day.
  • Find a quiet space for your child to watch the film on a laptop or tablet.
  • Praise your child as they join in with the lesson.

Practise using My Sets 2 and 3 Speed Sounds Book

Your child has a My Sets 2 and 3 Speed Sounds Book to practise reading sounds and words at home. There are instructions in the inside cover of the book.

See how quickly your child can read each of the sounds.

Ask them to read the words using Fred Talk.

Use the eBook Library

Use the Phonics Practice at Home quizzes in your child’s eBook Library on Oxford Owl.

Listen to your child read every day

You will find Read Write Inc. Storybooks in the bookbag/ in your child’s eBook Library for your child to read to you.

Choose a quiet time when they are wide awake.

Help your child to:

  • read the sounds and words at the front of the book, before they read the story
  • sound out any new words as they read the story.

Read back each page to them, after they have read it.

If the child has enjoyed the story, encourage them to read it again on the next day to increase their fluency.

Most importantly…do it all with patience and love.

Your support matters.

Thank you
