This series builds on Andrew's aptitude for making things really straight forward for less able pupils. It offers a systematic approach to spelling from the starting point of synthetic phonics through to the observation of phonic patterns in more complex words. Some of the children using this series will be working a year, or even two years behind their year group but the activities still need to be relevant, interesting and enable pupils to catch up with their peers. Repetition and practice are key features of the 'Supporting' series and every target in these books will have an introductory display page, focusing on a particular phoneme, followed by an activity page. All the books include 'target' record sheets, templates for individual education plans, and progress charts to track achievement.
