Fonix… or phonics?

Michael Gove has suggested that year one children be tested on their reading using words like ‘zort’ and ‘koob’. I like to think some subversive wag inserted ‘koob’ into the test. Perhaps they could add ‘werd’, too.  Anecdotal evidence suggests that advanced readers will fail this test, as they don’t recognise the words and feel shy of making a mistake. So, is phonics a Good Thing? Hoo nose? Ros Asquith, Lines cartoon, Phonics reeding test
