I got my assessment test results back, from my English course, and I am pleased to say that I came out as a level 2, which is equivalent to a GCSE. Thank god for that. I would have been absolutely mortified if I hadn’t. My kids are starting to ‘blend’ their phonics words together to begin reading, which is quite exciting. However, I am slightly worried what words they are teaching them at school. One of my girls made a card for my niece. She wrote a message to her cousin using the letters (sorry, phonemes – bad parent) she had learnt at school. Somehow or other she has managed to randomly write the word ‘sexy’ in the card! At least, I hope it’s bloomin’ random. Will be keeping a close eye on any other writing they both do in the future.
