Save yourself HOURS of work with this lovely interactive resource pack providing practice materials for the pseudo words that children will encounter during the year one phonics screening check. <br />
The pack contains 2 colourful PowerPoint presentations, 2 sets of printable flash cards, a lesson plan and an activity sheet. The resources would provide a numerous lesson and can be used year on year. <br />
The pack focuses solely on the pseudo words as in my experience, these tend to be the words children find most challenging in the check, even for able readers. <br />
The materials have been carefully prepared following the principles of the Standards and Testing Agency (STA) screening checks, ensuring a broad coverage of sounds including vowel digraphs and common consonant blends.

30 paragraphs of general comments for reports. These were for a Y2 class but would suit any Primary class really as they are generic statements including attitude, ability to work with others, friends, behaviour, listening skills, contributions to class etc... Hopefully can save someone some time thinking of different ways to phrase things.
These ‘Library Challenge’ cards were made for my class library, but they could be used in a school library as well. The idea was just to get the children excited about reading and properly engaged with the books, and they’ve really enjoyed working through the activities – an added bonus being that I use this work to decorate the walls of our library.
There’s a selection of 10 Library Challenge Cards, plus a ‘Library Challenge of the Week’ which just allows for changing things up a little without having to print and laminate more cards.
