Explicit teaching support and carefully constructed activities for reading, spelling and writing.
In Stage 7 Unit 4, children continue to learn the complex alphabetic code, as well as building their knowledge of morphology. Children learn more alternative spellings for long vowels, including split digraphs. Children also learn some alternative spellings for consonant sounds /s/, /j/, /n/, /r/, and /m/. The focus is still on reading and spelling – reversible skills which need to be linked for the most effective teaching.
