What? This assessment has been devised to assess children’s ability to segment words and begin to spell them using the Grapheme-Phoneme Correspondences (GPCs) introduced in Phase 2 Letters and Sounds.
Who? This assessment is designed for use with children who are working within Phase 2 Letters and Sounds. Children working at this level should be able to say the sound when shown the majority of letters of the alphabet and be able to say the sounds they can hear in simple words in the correct order. They will be beginning to write some letters correctly and in sequence in their independent writing.
When? These assessments are to be used at
the end of Phase 2 to assess whether children are ready to move on to the next phase. If children are not yet ready to move on, these assessments will clearly identify each child’s next steps within the given phase.
Ideally children should complete a Fun Friendly Phonics assessment at least once every term.
