Also posted this it's 'Staffroom' but there's more traffic in here so...
Can anyone provide a definitive list of what graphemes could come up in the year 1 phonic screener? I have some very old guidance from about 6 years ago, but it includes things that are not in the new year 1 curriculum. Surely it can't contain graphemes that aren't part of the year 1 curriculum? Can it?! hmm Thanks!

Thanks mrz, was hoping you might see this! It does seem weird that 'ch' as in chef and 'g' as in gem are included. I'm sure they are in now year 3 curriculum though it's been a while since I taught it so might be wrong

Consonant digraph which have been taught (would include ch) and the *sounds* which they represent (would include /ch/ /sh/ /k/ )

Think I was getting muddled with the year 3 spelling guidance which includes:
'Words with the /ʃ/ sound spelt ch (mostly French in origin)'

You expect real joined up thinking from the DfE? hmm
