I Love Reading Phonics Level 4: Pirate School by Melanie Hamm, Abigail Steel

It's the first day at pirate school and the new pupils are anything but cooperative, professing the desire to be anything BUT pirates. Can their captain and tutor persuade them that a pirate lifestyle is for them? Pirate School is one of a fantastic new fiction reading series for children aged 5+ that combines structured phonic progression with great artwork and fun stories. Devised with the help of an expert consultant, it is sure to enable children to achieve reading success. Specially created for use by both parents and teachers, I Love Reading Phonics is a dedicated, comprehensive reading scheme based on Synthetic Phonics and arranged in 7 progressive levels, giving plenty of practice in all the sounds of the English language. Each book includes clear information on Synthetic Phonics, a pronunciation grid and expert advice on how to get the most out of each title. Level 4 titles explore alternative spellings of vowels.
