Assessment of phonics
At John Cross we use Phonics Tracker to assess and track phonics across key stages.
Phonics Tracker is an instant assessment and tracking program for phonics, high frequency words and the phonics screening check. Designed by teachers for teachers to simplify the assessment of phonics by instantly recording whether a child can successfully pronounce the phoneme or word, tracking progress across the primary English curriculum.
Year 1 phonics screening check
The Year 1 phonics screening check is not a formal test, but a way for teachers to ensure that children are making sufficient progress with their phonics skills to read words and that they are on track to become fluent readers who can enjoy reading for pleasure and for learning.
