Block 4 Sound Pack – ‘au’ SPEAK Phonics

This Block 4 Sound Pack from our SPEAK Phonics scheme contains all your key resources for teaching the sound ‘au’.

Your 4 page teaching card sets out what to do in the session (download the Block 4 Teaching and Learning Guide for teaching cards for all the Block 4 sounds).
The pack also contains a double-sided large card, including 4 words to blend and an illustration, a small foldable card and 8 sound cards that display real words, nonsense words, and multisyllabic words. The cards are double-sided, with one side displaying dots and dashes to assist with blending.

Looking for a new systematic, synthetic phonics programme for your school or classroom? Then why not take a look at our brand new SPEAK Phonics scheme.

Created by our in-house team of teachers and designers, our SPEAK Phonics programme has been designed to bring a Systematic, Synthetic approach to phonics that helps to embed learning in a fun and practical way and support you in your application of phonics, by providing teachers with the knowledge to deliver high-quality phonics teaching, whether that be to a whole class, small group or one-to-one interventions.

Block 4 is all about learning to read the remaining digraphs and trigraphs, including split vowel digraphs, and blending these sounds to read real, nonsense and multisyllabic words. Children will also recall previously read words from Blocks 2/3 to keep words embedded in the orthographic store. Children will also learn to spell words using these sounds and learn how to choose the correct sound to spell the word.

In Block 4 there are 24 sounds and for each sound there are supporting resources: small card, large card, real/nonsense/multisyllabic word cards.

A 96 page Block 4 Teaching and Learning Guide sets out our suggested way to use the resources to deliver high-quality phonics sessions. It covers all of the digraphs and trigraphs and gives specific guidance on how to teach children to blend these sounds to read words. It can also be used as a handbook or can be printed and organised as cards for each sound.

Our 15 Fiction and Non-Fiction texts support comprehension skills aimed at developing reading speed and accuracy and come with all the resources you need to deliver high-quality reading comprehension sessions including individual text guides.

Additional Block 4 resources include a range of games and activities to help embed learning in a fun and practical way, teaching videos to support you in your application of SPEAK Phonics in the classroom and a range of display wall frieze and other resources for your classroom, that can be used to add to the phonics experience.
