Fast Phonics is a systematic, synthetic phonics programme with 20 levels.
Each level is presented as a Mountain Peak and covers one set of letters thoroughly with more than 20 activities – videos, interactive learning activities and books – for pupils to work through. Peak 1 covers the letter sounds s, a, t, p.
Strategy videos reinforce systematic synthetic phonics instruction. Letter-sound videos incorporate powerful visual mnemonics (visual memory aids) – proven to boost letter-sound recognition.
Children practise key phonics skills including letter-sound recognition, blending all through the word, spelling skills, nonwords, syllables, reading captions and extended text.
Beautifully illustrated decodable books are embedded within each peak. Pupils complete a comprehension quiz after they read each text.
Regular quizzes assess phonics skills and track pupil progress.
The bank of printable resources includes a teaching guide as well as pupil worksheets and handwriting pages for each peak.
Exciting rewards ensure children are engaged and motivated to keep learning. Playful characters, including a fun Yeti avatar, and exciting upgrades, collectable gems and Yeti coins, make Fast Phonics fast fun each step of the way.
