Rocket Phonics SSP
This DfE validated phonics programme for Reception and Year 1 builds on the familiar, original Letters and Sounds progression and phasing but incorporates the latest best practice required by Ofsted so that all children, including those in the lowest 20%, make the progress they need. The SSP is designed for whole-class teaching with the flexibility to allow for small groups and follows a slower-paced, more rigorous approach than existing phonics programmes as it covers two letter sounds per week. Created by recognised phonics experts Abi Steel and Debbie Hepplewhite, the excellent value training programme has been trialled in schools to ensure it is effective. We are offering both the online subscription which includes introductory and CPD videos and a range of components such as big books, sound mats, friezes, and flashcards. The accompanying reading books, flashcards and pupil write-in books can be purchased separately and are designed to encourage reading for pleasure from the very start. Each fully decodable book focuses on a small group of sounds to ensure fidelity to the programme.
