A series of 104 fiction and non-fiction titles, created with series editors James Clements and Shareen Wilkinson. This series combines explicit emphasis on vocabulary with systematic synthetic phonics practice. Children will learn new vocabulary at the same time as developing their decoding skills, fluency and comprehension.
To save you planning and teaching time, OUP has selected 300 ‘focus words’ from the Oxford Children’s Corpus, the largest known database of children’s language in the world.
Each book has a number of these focus words, which highlight key ‘Tier 2’ vocabulary. While they are not usually used in everyday language, these words are important for children to learn as they are found in lots of different written contexts.
The partner texts (Oxford Levels 1-6) are designed for an adult and child to read together. The adult reads the part with richer language, while the child reads phonically decodable text.
Vocabulary is supported by ‘focus word boxes’, which are designed for an adult to discuss with the child and further develop their vocabulary.
These books are fully decodable and aligned to Letters and Sounds sets from Reception/P1 to Year 1/P2. This helps you match your phonics teaching with children’s reading practice, ensuring that they progress in small steps with confidence.
Books at this level adhere to a progressive structure that supports children through Year 2/P3. These books are designed to facilitate comprehension and fluency while further developing children’s vocabulary.
