All resources in this section support Phase Six of Letters and Sounds. By the beginning of Phase Six children should know most of the common grapheme-phoneme correspondences (GPCs). They should be reading familiar words automatically, decoding quickly and silently in a well established routine or decoding aloud for trickier words. Spelling skills are likely to be behind their reading skills but their spelling should mostly be phonetically accurate. During Phase Six, children will become fl uent readers and more accurate spellers.
1 Phase Six Kit
When children reach the start of Phase Six, they already know most of the common grapheme-phoneme correspondences and can read hundreds of words. The reading is done automatically if the words are very familiar. For less familiar words, decoding can be done quickly with their well-practised sounding and blending routine. At this Phase, although children’s spelling is phonetically accurate, it can be quite unconventional. The resources in this kit will encourage children to become ever more fl uent readers and increasingly accurate spellers. Kit includes:
