Read common exception words, noting unusual correspondences between spelling and sound and where these occur in the word. Read words containing taught GPCs and -s, -es, -ing, -ed, -er and - est endings. Read other words of more than one syllable that contain taught GPCs. Read words with contractions (for example, I m, I ll, we ll) and understand that the apostrophe represents the omitted letter(s). There is a speedy response with the correct sound to graphemes (letters or groups of letters) for phase 2 and phase 3 phonemes. Sounds begin to be blended in unfamiliar words (CVC, CVCC, CCVC, CCVCC, CVCe and CCVCe) containing GPCs that have been taught. Common words begin to be read, and unusual correspondences between spelling and sound and where these occur in the word are noted. Words with known GPCs begin to be read and -s, -es, -ing, -ed, -er and -est endings are noticed. With support, phonically decodable words of more than one syllable are read. Common contractions (for example, I ll, I m, we ll) begin to be read. There is the beginning of an understanding that the apostrophe represents the omitted letter(s). There is a speedy response with the correct sound to graphemes (letters or groups of letters) for all phase 2, 3 and 5 phonemes. Alternative sounds for graphemes begin to be included.

Sounds are blended independently in unfamiliar words using taught GPCs. Common exception words are read independently, and unusual correspondences between spelling and sound and where these occur in a word are noted. Words with taught GPCs and -s, -es, - ing, -ed, -er and -est endings are ready independently. Phonically decodable two- and threesyllable words are read independently and with accuracy. Knowledge of the different uses of the apostrophe is applied to maintain understanding.

2 Read aloud accurately books that are consistent with phonic knowledge and that do not require other strategies to work out words. Re-read these books to build up fluency and confidence in word reading. Read accurately by blending the sounds in words that contain the graphemes taught so far, especially recognising alternative sounds for graphemes. Read accurately words of two or more syllables that contain the same graphemes as above. Read words containing common suffixes. Read common exception words, noting unusual correspondences between spelling and sound and where these occur in the word. Read most words quickly and accurately, without overt sounding and blending, when they have been frequently encountered. With the support of a teacher, books that are consistent with phonic knowledge are read aloud with at least 90 per cent accuracy. Books begin to be re-read with some accuracy and fluency. Some phrases begin to be read fluently. Words are read accurately by blending the sounds in words that contain the graphemes taught so far (up to phase 5).
