Learn English with Letterland
About Fix-it Phonics Fix-it Phonics will help your child to make the link between a letter’s sound and shape – a method of learning to read called phonics.
Learning about digraphs & trigraphs It is recommended that children complete Level 1 and Level 2 before starting Level 3, however included in Level 3 is a quick review of the previous levels. Part 1 - summarises the a-z Letterland characters, sounds and shapes. Part 2 - summarises the digraphs and trigraphs taught in Level 2. *
( 2 or 3 letters representing a new sound e.g sh in shop). *
It is very important that letter sounds are taught correctly as just by starting to say a character’s name, you will be saying the sound they make in words. You then have the tools to blend the letter sounds into simple words: ‘mmm…’ ‘a…’ ‘nnn…’ - man. Simple but incredibly powerful stories unlock thousands of new words. Children will learn how letters combine to make more new sounds. Level 3 will unlock the following sounds/spelling patterns: oo oy oi au aw ou ow ph wh air ear suffixes
Letterland goes further... There are 3 Fix-it Phonics levels. All levels include: Letter recognition skills Listening and speaking skills Basic English vocabulary Oral blending and segmenting High frequency words. Level 1 - focuses on Aa-Zz shapes and sounds. Level 2 - revises a-z and introduces important digraphs and trigraphs Level 3 - introduces more important digraphs and trigraphs, building the foundations for full literacy in English.
Letterland is fun! We feel the most important thing about learning English, and learning how to read and write, is to have fun. That’s why Fix-it Phonics is full of songs, games, actions, chants and colourful characters. We want you, and the children you teach, to enjoy it!

Let’s see what happens when Walter Walrus sits next to Harry Hat Man in a word.
lrus’s water tricks! Watch out when Walter Walrus is about!
Walter Walrus hates it when Harry Hat Man stands ahead of him. He’s so tall and he wears a hat! So what does Walter do? He splashes Harry’s hat off! Harry is too surprised to speak, so you will just hear Walter saying “w!” In a few words, Harry gets annoyed at Walter. He grabs a bucket of water and throws it over Walter, saying, “Who do you think you are?” Then you will just hear Harry’s ‘h...’ sound.
2 letters: 2 sounds
When you see these two letters together, you will usually hear Walter saying, “w!” In just a few words, like who, you will only hear Harry.

Listen to the song. If you can, join in when you listen for the second time.
Listen to the song! I splash Harry Hat Man’s hat off when I can, which makes the poor Hat Man an unhappy man. I splash him in when and in which and in why; I splash him in what and in where. And while I like to tease him and call it a joke, the Hat Man cries “Stop! It’s not fair!” I splash Harry Hat Man’s hat off when I can, which makes the poor Hat Man an unhappy man. “Just who do you think that you are?” he shouts out. For who is the one little word, where he splashes me back, and the joke is on me. So it’s me who’s not going to be heard!
Make these wh words together with the Advanced Picture Code Cards. Blend the sounds together.
Act it out! when, white, which, whale.
In small groups, or at the front of the class, make some of these words. It is much easier to remember stories if you’ve acted them out!
