The All Aboard Phonics programme provides a structured approach to teaching phonics to children in the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) through to Year 1. The course is laid out in phases 2 to 5, with each phase targeting specific phonetic skills and tricky words. Phase 2, which spans 6 weeks, is designed for Reception pupils and introduces fundamental sounds such as 's', 'a', 't', 'p', gradually building up to blending consonant-vowel-consonant (CVC) words and learning tricky words like 'the', 'to', and 'and'. Phase 3 extends over 12 weeks and delves into more complex sounds like 'sh', 'ch', 'th', 'ng', and introduces new tricky words such as 'we', 'me', 'be', culminating in a revision and assessment week.

Phase 4, also set for Reception, is a 6-week programme that focuses on consonant clusters in words, both at the beginning (CCVC) and the end (CVCC), and includes learning tricky words like 'said', 'so', 'have', and 'like'. Phase 5 spans the entire Year 1 and is divided into units that cover new graphemes, a reading focus with high-frequency words, spelling focus with alternative graphemes, and finally, word endings. This phase also includes regular revision and assessments to ensure retention and understanding. The All Aboard Phonics Plus Manual offers additional resources and assessments for children who require extra phonics support, ensuring that by the end of Year 1, all children have a solid foundation in phonics, ready to progress to the National Curriculum for spelling in Year 2.
