The Rescue series is an exciting new reading series designed especially for older pupils who struggle with their reading and may have gaps in their phonic knowledge. The dynamic storyline follows a group of girl and boy heroes on their adventures in both the real world and inside a fantasy computer game. Original, striking and motivating illustrations and stories have been designed to appeal to catch up readers. The 10 books introduce vowel sounds and their alternative spellings (following Phase 5 of the ‘Letters and Sounds’ programme). Each story includes a reading practice page, vocabulary page and multisyllable words split for the reader. Each book presents the alternative spellings for one of the following vowel sounds: ‘ae’, ‘ee’, ‘oe’, ‘er’, ‘ow/oi’, ‘oo’, ‘ie’, ‘or’, ‘air’, ‘ar’. Reading age 6–7, interest level 8-14 years. The Rescue series follows the same phonic progression as the Talisman 1 series and can be used in parallel with that series.
