We don’t really agree with the phonics test or ‘Phonics Screen Check’ however, we need to support children with it. We have made some resources to help both adults and children.
We have some phonics flashcards which contain real and pseudo words. If a word is pseudo it will have picture of an alien next to it like the DfE phonics screening test. If the words are real they do not have a picture next to them.
These can help children in Year 1 taking the test this year as well as children in Year 2 re-taking the test from last year. Look in our Year 1 Phonics Test tag.
If you have any other suggestions of resources to support the children then let us know.
On our TES account we have a very simple SMART which can support sorting real and pseudo words.
