The third Level is for children (ages 6-7) who know all the sounds and are confident about writing phonetic words. It introduces the children to grammar concepts such as capital letters and full stops to make a sentence, what is a verb, noun and adjective, and simple present and simple past verb forms. It also covers more spelling rules such as the use of double letters at the end of words (cliff, dress, well) and making plurals.
The order of the alphabet is practiced so the children can begin to use dictionaries to look up words they are not sure how to spell. This work goes together with the writing of very short stories, writing about a picture, spells for Halloween etc and the introduction of spelling tests. The children also continue reading books at their own level from our reading scheme.
