Curriculum - Letters and Sounds

The Letters and Sounds program effectively targets the development of oral language, reading, spelling and written expression in the early years in addition to providing an excellent structure for remediation in upper primary and beyond. It aligns with the achievement standards outlined in the Australian Curriculum (English) and has been shown to significantly improve whole-school literacy outcomes.

Letters and Sounds is completed in a sequence of 6 phases. The lessons should include the following components: 

  • Review/Revisit
  • Teach
  • Practise
