Re: the phonics test at the end of primary 1, is this the same as the UK phonics test at the end of reception? If so, my son is going to struggle with those pseudo words eg poosh, isk, uct, prool, tesh, chack. He know the sounds that go with all the letters and can decipher some simple words, but doesn’t seem to have covered blended sounds eg ch, st, pr yet Any advice? I’m looking at the Kipper, Chip & Biff ‘My Phonics Kit’ and that looks a level above what my guy’s doing unless they’ve got some cramming planned for the last few months. At his last parent teacher meeting, he got a good report.
We are in England. My two took/will take part in a phonics screening at the end of year 1 which is the second year of infant school. If P1 is the same as reception here then is your DC is a year younger?
