At Phase 5.5 (Sound Families), we have developed our own unique and extensive Sound Family decodable readers to introduce alternative vowel sounds so that children can become familiar with phonemes being represented by different graphemes.
At the Phase 6 (Spelling), students will learn about past tenses, adding suffixes, and spelling long words. They will read longer and less familiar texts independently and with increased fluency.
Not ready for Phase 5?
At Phase 4 (Blends), students consolidate their knowledge of letter sounds in words that contain adjacent consonants. Students will practise blending for reading and segmenting for spelling.
