How are we feeling about the Phonics test for 5 years olds/ Year 1 ?
My youngest daughter is in Yr1 and will be being tested this week. As the youngest of 4 children all of who are dyslexic (although the youngest hasnt been tested but hey l know the signs ) l felt a little uneasy at first but then l thought, they know about my daughter and our family history so in a way she is very lucky she has a head start.
So l am pleased that this may pick up on other children that have SLD and get the support they need early as l feel this is a HUGE part of the support needed. What are your thoughts ?
