A free preview and guide to the Advanced Story Wizard Phonics resources is available here.

The Expected Sets introduce children to the phonemes they are expected to learn at the Foundation Stage. These Advanced Sets extend children’s knowledge beyond the expected stage and help them with the transition into Year 1. These are also suitable for Year 1 students.

A free planning guide is available with examples of how Story Wizard Phonics resources can be organised across the school year.

The Story Wizard phonics scheme aims to get children writing stories as quickly as possible by helping them understand and enjoy the relationships between spoken sounds and written symbols (magic spells!).

Each time a new phoneme is introduced it is placed in the context of words alongside phonemes that have been previously taught to help children quickly make sense of the relationship between letters and words.

Included activities with this set:
sound charts with initial mouth positions
flashcards with guidance for sounds
definitions for every word
Wave Your Wand activities: Make a ‘word wand’ and then wave your wand in shapes that become ‘magic spells’
Word Line games: Select a letter and then have a go at organising yourselves into a ‘word line’
Word Maker: Develop fine motor skills and handwriting by cutting out phonemes and sticking them into place. Then having a go at writing words yourself.

Features of Story Wizard Phonics:
– children are introduced to words and blending from the very beginning
– phonemes are introduced progressively and placed into words alongside previously learned phonemes to support ongoing consolidation
– the meaning and usage of new words is taught throughout
– active learning games to help children understand the relationship between sounds, letters, words and sentences
– visual guides for mouth positions
– pronunciation guidance on flash cards
– writing activities are available in cursive and lowercase print (both are included)
