Reading Stars Phonics

Covering Phases 1 to 5, Reading Stars Phonics, offers progression on a week-by-week basis (while always matching children’s phonics knowledge) and is designed to foster a lifelong love of reading. These fully decodable, synthetic phonics readers are multicultural books with diversity and equality at the heart of the scheme. The series follows the Letters and Sounds programme and supports reading development in Reception and Year One. 


Ransom Reading Stars is a thorough, whole-school programme, starting with Alpha Stars, which introduces children to the letters and core sounds of the alphabet. Reading Stars is the main programme, providing book banded titles from Pink through to Lime. Goal!, Reading Stars Plus and Neutron Stars offers age-appropriate books for struggling readers. All components of the scheme can be found here.
