Lists of words suitable for Y1 phonics screening practice...

  1. Used the DfE nonsense words and worked them all into a story about some imaginary/strange minibeasts ( we were doing a minibeast topic ) Mounted the story with some kids artwork onto a very large piece of cardboard packaging which opened like a book about 4ft tall, on the adjacent side we created a very large strange minibeast with a slot for it's mouth where we 'post' words through to 'help' the minibeast called GLORPID say them correctly. We use 'real and fake' words this is just a hands on take on some of the interactive phonics games-The kids love it and are using it all the time.
  2. I only just came across these messages, so sorry if I am repeating something that has already been said. I suggest asking children every day to read a real word that uses the letter-sound correspondences you want them to practise AND is likely to be unfamiliar to them. That way you are preparing them for the nonsense words in the Phonics Check, because if they don't know a word already, they will have to decode it in the same way as a nonsense word. But it has an advantage over using nonsense words. After they have decoded the word, you can explain what it means and so you'll be increasing their vocabulary at the same time. Here are some examples:
