Reading and Phonics
It is an expectation at St Joseph’s that the children read every night at home. We also read in school with the children, at least three times a week. On the week commencing 6th June 2022, the year 1 children will be tested on their phonics skills. This is done with a familiar adult to check their recognition of sounds and their ability to read words.
We teach phonics using RWI children need to know all of set 1, 2 and 3 sounds and read them in words.
