Zat Phonics Screening Check is designed and updated to support the Year 1 Phonics Screening Check UK. It can be also be used as a tool to support children with their Phonics decoding when reading. Use the phonics audio playback to check if you are sounding each word out. The audio playback for each word is broken down into each sound and then blended back together. For example ‘z-a-t = zat’

Great phonics audio

As a class teacher, I would recommend this app to other teachers and parents who's children are in Year 1. The audio is great to help children with blending the sounds. The new sticker book helps to motivate children who are practicing for the UK phonics screening check.

Perfect for the KS1 screening check

The audio playback is brilliant to check if the word has been read correctly. I would recommend it to all parents in year 1 and year 2 to practice the phonics screening check test.
