Teaching the Sounds

You want your students to achieve letter-sound mastery, producing the sound as quickly as they can tell you their own name. Our no-prep Phonics Lessons deliver every step of learning the sounds, from the introduction of the sounds and their representing letters to at-their-fingertips mastery with our 5-step process.


Step 1 – Get It Right

Use videos to demonstrate the correct pronunciation of the 44 sounds in an English, Australian or American accent.


Step 2 – Tune in

Talk about the sounds in the context of real words (for example: “Is the ‘sh’ of shed in the
1st, 2nd or 3rd position? Let’s talk about where we normally find the ‘sh’ letters in a word.”).


Step 3 – Recognise

Identify the letter(s) associated with the sound.


Step 4 – Speed Read

Improve accuracy and the speed with which your class recall the sounds using fluency drills.


Step 5 – Play Phonics Hero Games

Practise the sounds with the Phonics Hero interactive games.

Teaching Blending

With a library of over 3,700 words and 2,400 sentences, you’ll never get stuck thinking of the best words for your lesson. Your phonics lesson is structured for you; we break the words into sounds and provide pictures to grow vocabulary and aid comprehension. Next, speed reading activities help your class become fluent readers who can then make the leap to sentences.


Step 1 – Blending

Your class practise blending single words with phonics and picture support.


Step 2 – Speed Read

Improve reading fluency with quick-fire reading practice.


Step 3 – Nonsense Word Reading

Practise decoding with non-words like ‘fep’ or ‘hup’.


Step 4 – Play Phonics Hero Games

More whole-class practise with the Phonics Hero interactive games.

Teaching Segmenting

Once children have become confident with blending, it’s time to reverse the process and spell words with the target sounds. Our structured no-prep Phonics Lessons help you guide children through learning to spell with phonics:


Step 1 – Segmenting

Your class practises segmenting words using our 5-step process; say the word, stretch it, count the sounds, represent the sounds and check it looks right!


Step 2 – Word Sorts

Using our digital word sorts, children practise identifying the correct spelling choice for a phoneme, e.g. ‘oi’ vs ‘oy’.


Step 3 – Play Phonics Hero Games

Teaching Tricky Words

Tricky words are harder to learn and harder to teach. You can launch a phonics lesson specifically taking children through the reading and spelling process for the tricky words, and of course, differentiate the content.

Applying Learning With Sentences

For either decodable or tricky words, across both reading and spelling, teachers can build on children’s learning by switching to sentences. In addition, our ‘word support’ guides your class if they get stuck on reading or spelling a particular word.
