Phonics at Princess Frederica
Princess Frederica uses Monster Phonics to support the teaching of phonics. Children start phonics sessions in Nursery and carry on through Reception, Year 1 and Year 2. Teachers continue to make references to phonics throughout all years including Year 6 as well as targeted support for children where it is needed.
Monster Phonics is a scheme we here at Princess Frederica to support with the teaching of Phonics. Further information can be found on the Monster Phonics website.

We also advise parents and carers to read both the attached letters below which gives key information on Monster Phonics and how your child's phonics journey can be supported at home. There is also a login and password that parents and carers can use at home to support children who are learning at home due to a lockdown, isolation period or quarantine (this has been emailed to all parents and carers in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2. We are delighted that Monster Phonics will be allowing this access until at least the end of the autumn term '20.

The Phonics Screen in Year 1
Children are assessed in Year 1 on their phonics ability in June in the Phonics Screen. This is carried out on a one to one basis with a class teacher in Year 1. A child will either pass or not pass this assessment. Any children who do not pass the assessment when they are in Year 1 will be assessed again at the end of Year 2. Please see the document below for further information about the process and answers to some commonly asked questions.
