£3.25£18.95 plus VAT (if applicable)

The Alphabetic Code – Building Up the Sounds and Graphemes chart with adult guidance ‘post-its’ about the alphabetic code

‘Core’ Multi-skills Activities pages for every letter/s-sound correspondence introduced systematically in Books 1 to 8 (these alternate with the Mini Story pages):

Phonemic awareness, letter formation, oral segmenting, encoding and decoding are featured throughout Books 1 to 8. In Book 9, the Multi-skills Activities pages are replaced with featured Spelling Word Banks (for example: ‘Same grapheme, different sounds’; ‘Same sound, different graphemes’)

About No Nonsense Phonics Skills Pupil Book 5+

The No Nonsense Phonics Skills Pupil Book 5+ is an extra, optional book that Debbie Hepplewhite has created by special request. This is because many schools have existing reading book schemes which introduce some letter/s – sound correspondences earlier than they are introduced in Debbie’s No Nonsense Phonics and Phonics International programmes.

The following letter/s – sound correspondences have been used to create Pupil Book 5+ thereby facilitating a range of reading book schemes to be used with the No Nonsense Phonics and Phonics International programmes:


If teachers use this optional book, continue to use the No Nonsense Phonics Skills Pupil Books 6 to 9 in full – that is, don’t ‘skip’ the code of Pupil Book 5+ when it appears in the later books.

There is no Teacher Book for this optional Pupil Book 5+. Refer to Teacher Book 5 for general guidance.
