Red faces at UKLA as Scarlett reads and spells non-words

Literacy ‘experts’ maintain that testing children on made-up words confuses children and that they can’t read or spell words that aren’t real. As I’ve argued repeatedly, see here and here, they are talking utter claptrap.
Well, I thought, I’m sure my friend’s daughter Scarlett would love to show them just how wrong they are: And she did!
Thanks to Scarlett. No adults were harmed in the making of the video.
