Practice Your Blending Skills:Real and ‘Alien’ Words.

Read these real and alien words with yoru child[1]

Assessment of reading skills now includes asking children to decode non-words (or pseudo-words) that can be decoded by “sounding out” the letters. Using non-words means that children aren’t able to rely on their existing knowledge of real words, and instead have to use their letter-sound knowledge. This is now part of the Year 1 Phonics Screening test and a daily part of reading in class.
