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.

Catch up phonics lessons for Years 2, 3 and 4 based on the Letters and Sounds Programme.

This document offers a series of phonics lessons aimed at helping children in Years 2, 3 and 4 who may have missed, or not fully understood, some of the crucial stages of systematic synthetic phonics teaching in the early years.

The units of work will be useful if some of your children are experiencing difficulties with:

• blending phonemes for reading and segmenting for spelling;

• selecting the correct spelling for long vowel phonemes;

• reading and spelling longer words containing adjacent consonants.

The lessons cover the alternative spellings of common vowel phonemes (Phase 5) and can be used flexibly to meet the needs of your children, based on your assessment of their current phonic knowledge. The simple assessment tool provided will help you to identify the phonemes you need to teach or to revisit, thereby filling crucial gaps in phonic knowledge.

Included also are six lessons which cover some tricky phonemes e.g. wr, ph, kn, gn, tch and softening c. These can be used at your discretion.

In addition, there are two blocks of work which address the teaching of Phases 4 and 5 tricky words. These sessions will help you to teach your children to read and spell these words automatically.

The lessons should be conducted three times a week by teachers or by trained teaching assistants and should be lively, exciting and full of fun.

  • 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.

A half term Year 6 unit to support end of Key Stage 2 expectations in writing.

This supplementary unit is specifically designed to help Year 6 teachers in the summer term to generate quality writing outcomes in order to inform their end of year teacher assessments. It comprises four mini-units and is complemented by several shorter independent writing outcomes. Teachers can select which mini-units to cover, or can cover them all dependent on gaps in learning.

The unit focuses on using a quality text (Wonder by R.J. Palacio) to plan a wealth of writing opportunities in a wide range of genres (fiction, non-fiction and poetry). It also provides guidance on how to aim for the higher standard in writing.

This resource includes one weeks electronic set of plans for parents for English and Literacy from Reception to Year 6. 

Our exciting 'Read and Respond' units will support home learning in English and Literacy. The ‘mini units’, available for Years 1-6 inclusive, provide daily English lesson plans and have been designed for you to send home to parents. (Reception guidance for Literacy is also included, though in a slightly different format).

All the plans use text extracts freely downloadable from LoveReading4Kids, Oxford Owl or websites with free audio recordings.

It is suggested that each unit is sent to parents with an accompanying letter as a way of the class teacher personally introducing the unit of work. This will provide the teacher with the opportunity to address any particular sections of the plan, provide supporting materials (e.g. a writing frame) where appropriate and/or make reference to any prior learning.  An editable example of how this might look is also included.
