In the week beginning the 6th December our Year 2 pupils will be sitting for the National Phonics Screening Check.
Your child has brought home some nonsense words, made up from different sounds to practice for the Check.
Please remind your child that they must do three things when reading the nonsense/alien words.
- Read the special friends sound first – if there isn’t a special friend go on to the next step.
- Fred talk all the sounds
- say the word
- Remember to do all of the above out loud, never Fred in the head.
For further nonsense words to practice, please use the following RWI nonsense words for Set 1, Set 2, Set 3 and additional sounds.
