Phase 6+ Part 1 Planning and Resources CD

Description:

This CD contains a complete set of phonics lesson plans and all the accompanying resources (including Smart Notebook 11 screens) for 4 weeks of revision of Best Bets from Phase 5c (largely writing focused), 1 week covering homophones and another focusing on polysyllabic words ending in 'et' and 'age'. Teachers' notes (also on the CD) detail how to use the materials and provide instructions for activities not contained in Letters and Sounds.

This CD covers Part 1 (weeks 1-6) of my Phase 6+/Y2 week by week breakdown (see Phase 6 Planning section of this website for the complete plan). This long term plan covers an entire academic year and includes 4 weeks of revision of Phase 5c Best Bets (largely through writing), all the requirements of phase 6, plus additional requirements of the new NC eg homophones, possessive apostrophe, contractions etc. It also includes a few additional aspects, which I think are useful at this stage eg words ending in 'et' and 'age', irregular past tense words etc

Schools that want to move straight from first teaching of Phase 5c to Phase 6 should omit the first 4 weeks of teaching on this CD. Schools that also feel they don't want to cover homophones/words ending with 'et' and 'age' at this point should not purchase this CD, but start with Phase 6+ Part 2 (and change any words that revise the aspects above from the Part 1 CD).

NB: Many of the files are in PDF format, so you will need to have Adobe Reader installed in order to open the files. You will also need Smart Notebook 11 software to open the Smart Notebook screens.

£14.99 plus £1.70 postage and packing (within the UK only). NB: CD sleeves may vary in colour.
