Count down on digraphs

It's time for the next Y1 Phonics assessment for Y1 children and Y2 retakes.

Top Tip

Remind children to whisper the mantra 'Special Friends, Fred Talk' before they read each nonsense word.

Analysis on a plate

Click the instructions tab on the excel grid. It calculates the total score for each child AND the sounds and words to practise. (Clever eh?)


Scoring 25+? Super! They'll be fine in June.

If not,
  1. Get tutoring - use these steps and this clip to practise teaching Set 2 sounds and words.
  2. Organise 5-minute afternoon practice sessions with the whole class. Use the results to group the children if in a two+ form entry school.

Free Screening Check Prep events

We will practise teaching Set 2 and 3 Speed Sounds and one-to-one tutoring to help the weakest readers make the best progress.

Sessions are open to Reading Leaders and Year 1 teachers.
Reception teachers are also welcome, to help prepare children for Year 1.

These free events in February and March are filling fast. Click here to book.

Hope all this helps,
Best wishes
