At Melbourne Infant School children are taught phonics as soon as they start in Reception. As the children move through their time at the school they will progress through the Phases. At school we follow the Letters and Sounds Scheme.
At the end of Year 1 the children will sit their Phonic Screening Test. The children have to read 40 words, some of the words are real and some are nonsense words e.g. blan. If the children do not achieve the pass score, then they will re-sit the test again at the end of Year 2.
For more information about phonics at Melbourne Infant School please see below to see our PowerPoint which is delivered to parents early in the Autumn term each year.
For the data of last year's Phonic Screening please see the Ofsted and Results page.
