Activities

Every story includes four activities which are designed to consolidate learning. The activities progress with each stage, gradually building the level of difficulty to match the level of story being read.

At every stage, there are activities that enable the learner to explore the phonemes and graphemes from each story, and to recall key events. Each stage then introduces a new activity.

For example, in Stage One there is a Listen & Spell activity where the learner can blend sounds together to form the words, whilst Stage Four has a Sentence Building activity that enables learners to add words to form a sentence.
