By Phase 6, children should be able to read hundreds of words using one of three strategies: reading them automatically, decoding them quickly and silently or decoding them aloud.
They will also learn;
- Prefixes and suffixes, e.g. ‘in-’ and ‘-ed’
- The past tense
- Memory strategies for high frequency or topic words
- How to use a dictionary
- Where to put the apostrophe in words like ‘I’m’
- Spelling rules
