Letters and Sounds is a 6 phase program that focuses on phonics awareness, targeting primary students in Years 1 and 2. Staff work 1 on 1 with students every day for 15 minutes, teaching the letters and sounds of the alphabet to build and develop students’ oral language, listening, spelling and writing skills. In conjunction with the classroom program, the STAR program’s aim is to prepare students to become fluent readers through a concentrated focus on the development of their phonics knowledge to ensure students’ progress at the appropriate level.
