Children are secure working within phase 5 when they can:

  • Give the sound when shown any grapheme that has been taught
  • Write the common graphemes for any given sound
  • Use phonic skill and knowledge as the prime approach to reading and spelling unfamiliar words, including those that are not completely decodable
  • Read and spell phonically decodable two-syllable and three-syllable words
