Phase Four consolidates knowledge of graphemes in reading and spelling words. No new grapheme-phoneme correspondences are taught in this phase. It is suggested that many children may be capable of taking this step much earlier, in which case they should not be held back from doing so.
Phase Five aims to broaden knowledge with new graphemes and alternative pronunciations, where relevant, as most phonemes can be spelled in more than one way and most graphemes can represent more than one phoneme. This phase should be treated as a resource to be used as needed rather than as a list of items to be worked through slavishly with all children.
