The overview below details PLD’s SSP sequence from single letter phoneme-grapheme relationships and digraphs through to the introduction of alternative spellings in the extended code. Along with teaching the phoneme-grapheme relationships in isolation, it is critical that opportunities to apply this knowledge to extended reading and writing (dictation) tasks are also provided. The PLD SSP phonic teaching sequence also underpins the presentation of High-Frequency Words (HFW’s).
Vowels & Prefixes/Suffixes
The PLD downloadable Teaching Sequence Manuals are comprehensive resources that include termly sequences of phonic concepts, related word list templates and phonic dictation passages (where appropriate).
