This is a useful resource for systematic, high quality teaching of (Synthetic) phonics for teachers. It is sequenced and systematic, with the view of moving from learning to read to reading to learn. It is set out in six phases that are developmental and flexible to meet the varied capabilities in early years. It focuses on reading (decoding) and spelling (encoding) as reversible processes. It also takes the view of phonics as a means to an end, that is, phonics needs to be taught systematically and alongside comprehension. It is supportive of the Early Years Learning Framework.
It has practical strategies, clear sequence and assessment resources.
