Phonic Assessment Tool


Our Assessment Tool is a double sided downloadable document that helps you to track your child’s progress in their phonic development. 

Assessing phonics is vital for children to make progress with their reading. Assessment is only worth it if you do something with it. Therefore once you have completed the assessment with your child you need to:

  1. Ensure you teach any sounds they are unsure of and/or go onto the next group of sounds.
  2. Make sure you repeat sounds in order to compound their learning. 

It is important that your child feels confident in their learning. Do not tell your child they are being assessed or having a test. Try your best not to highlight or tick the sheet in front of the child this will help with their belief in themselves. Have some fun with it!

You will see that alien words are part of the assessment. Alien words are non-words, they are ‘words’ that the government set and are part of the year 1 phonic screening to assess the children in their phonics. Before assessing alien words it’s Important that you tell the child that they are going to read an alien word beforehand. The children never see an alien word without a picture of an alien next to it. 

If you need help with progressing through the phonic sounds, please reach out to me directly and I’ll be more than happy to help you along.
