Fast Track Phonics

Ref: Price: Subject:
PBL994 £40.00
Subject to VAT where applicable
English and Literacy

Through phonics, children will develop key skills to help them achieve as readers and writers. Most pupils will reach the expected level of understanding through following a systematic daily phonics programme. However, some pupils may have more difficulty in acquiring these skills and for these children a phonics catch up programme may be required.

Fast Track Phonics has been developed to support children in Year 2 who did not achieve at the expected level in the Year 1 Phonics Check. It is designed to address gaps in learning. It is not intended to take the place of the daily phonics session, but would ideally be run in addition. It is not for pupils who have identified special needs and a more intensive one to one programme may be more appropriate for these children.

Fast Track Phonics is a 14 week programme which focuses on the key skills of all good phonics programmes which are:

  • Grapheme/phoneme correspondence.
  • Blending to support reading.
  • Segmenting to support spelling.
  • Blending and segmenting as reversible processes.

Key Learning Indicators of Performance (KLIPs) - Reading

Ref: Price: Subject:
RES193 £35.00
Subject to VAT where applicable
English and Literacy

The KLIPs, or Key Learning Indicators of Performance, have been developed from Lancashire’s National Curriculum Support Materials, which detail the key learning in reading and writing for each year group. These key learning grids for each year group can be used to provide:

  • Detailed assessment information for the teacher to use to inform their future planning of next steps (formative).
  • Overall judgements which can be made more summatively (for example once a term), to enable senior leadership teams to track progress across the school, during the year. This will assist schools with self-evaluation and in informing discussions with others e.g. inspection teams, about attainment and progress.
  • A means of informing parents about attainment and progress.

The underlined statements on the grids have been identified as Key Learning Indicators of Performance (KLIPs) as these have the greatest impact on the further development of skills and subsequent learning. Consequently, the Key Learning Indicators of Performance (KLIPs) play a particularly significant role in the assessment process.
