Explicit teaching support and carefully constructed activities for reading, spelling and writing for Stages Plus 4, 5 and 6.
In these stages, children begin to learn consonant digraphs (two letters, one sound) and they practise blending and segmenting two or three adjacent consonants in words. The focus in this new edition TAR is on reading and spelling – reversible skills which need to be linked for the most effective teaching.
Stage Plus 4 sequence: ll ss ff + suffix -s
Stage 5 sequence: blending adjacent consonants (jump, snap, grunt) + ck
Stage 6 sequence: sh ch tch th ng ph wh
