The Teach Hub Letters and Sounds

Year 2 – Phase 6 is now complete and online!

The cost of the entire scheme is £495 via a school membership subscription.  An annual recurring subscription of £100 will then take place.  Please see our Terms and Conditions when purchasing our Programme.

Three schools using The Teach Hub phonics programme recently had an OFSTED inspection (April 2022, May 2022, November 2022) and were praised for how well the programme was used across the school and how their phonetically decodable reading books matched the programme using a range of Publishers. OFSTED enjoyed the structure of the lessons and noted that the subject knowledge was embedded across the school.

“The school’s phonics programme is well planned and helps children make a quick start learning to read. Staff are well trained and regularly check what the children can remember. Books are well matched to the letter sounds pupils know. Pupils develop a love of stories and poems and can talk confidently about the stories they like.”
