About Fix-it Phonics Fix-it Phonics will help your child to make the link between a letter’s sound and shape – an important first step in a method of learning to read called phonics.

Letter sounds When children are learning to read, it is letter sounds rather than alphabet names that help them to read words. You can blend the letter sounds ‘mmm…’ ‘a…’ ‘nnn…’ into the word man, but the alphabet names ‘em’ ‘ay’ ‘en’ can only give you a non-word: emayen. That is why the Letterland characters are so helpful. Just by starting to say a character’s name, you will be saying the sound they make in words.

Teaching order The teaching order for this level is: s a t p i n m d g o c k e u r h b f l j v w x y z qu This order is recommended by the UK government and has been chosen for Fix-it Phonics as it maximises word building possibilities from an early stage.

Letterland goes further... There are 3 Fix-it Phonics levels. All levels include: 4 Letter recognition skills 4 Listening and speaking skills 4 Basic English vocabulary 4 Oral blending and segmenting 4 High frequency words. Level 1 Level 2
