National Curriculum linked Grapheme-Phoneme Reading Test

National Curriculum linked Grapheme-Phoneme Reading Test

This resource contains a list of words, which are related to the National Curriculum Appendix 1, for Key Stage 1 and 2. The list is useful for assessing the ability of children to read words containing the Grapheme-Phoneme correspondences outlined in the National Curriculum. The test can be used to identify sounds which the child does not yet know, which they can be taught. For this reason, it is especially useful w here a child is not making progress in their ability to read accurately. Once a sound, or group of sounds, has been identified as being unrecognised by the child, they can be the focus of any teaching. This test can form the first step in an Assessment, Plan, Do and Review cycle. The test was used as part of the programme outlined in “Improving Reading Accuracy, and Comprehension, Programme Outline”
