  • Step 1 introduces children to the letters of the alphabet - their correct formation and the sound each makes. The letters are taught in a specific sequence so as to encourage word building and word recognition as early as possible.

    Step 2 introduces the importance of vowels in word formation and allows children to apply the knowledge gained from Step 1, by blending single letters into CVC words. Step 2 also helps students recognise groups of words that have a common feature or pattern through the introduction of short vowel word families.

    Step 3 focuses on the importance of initial and final consonant blends (clusters) for the proper pronunciation of more challenging words. Voiced and unvoiced digraphs are also introduced, and children are exposed to sentence completion and creation.

    Step 4 commences with vowel digraphs to help students progress in their pronunciation by recognizing that a group of two successive letters can represent a single sound. During this step, emphasis is also placed on final consonant blends (clusters) to prevent end sound reduction in the future, and maintain intelligibility.

    Step 5 initiates phonological awareness and proficiency in the more commonly mispronounced letter combinations. Students at this level are introduced to phonics rules for silent letters, syllables, consonant trigraphs and suffixes - all of which contribute towards demystifying the English language and promoting easier reading and clear speech.

    FootStep Phonics is a 5 stage synthetic phonics course designed to introduce children to the sounds that make up English words. The course has been designed in such a way, that children begin their journey learning easier sounds, and then progress through to the more complicated sounds that form words. This levelled approach ensures that children are exposed to, and given the opportunity to master the basics before moving on to the next step. It is therefore encouraged that individual student ability be assessed, before advancing to the next level.
