The Phonics Screening Check takes place in the Summer term and Meerkats will be busy learning the sounds and how to apply them to support them with learning to read. Below are some useful sites to support your child’s learning. Mr Thorne has made hundreds of videos to help children learn sounds in a very fun and engaging way. Spend some time flicking through his videos. The children will love joining in with him!
