Oxford-levelled books have helped millions of students all over the world learn to read and to love
At Oxford, we use an expertly developed and well-established system for levelling our books, which has been used to develop many of our popular and well-loved series including Hero Academy.
We’ve finely graded our books so you can accurately match children to the right book. With the help of expert authors our levelled books hook children of different ages into reading, capture their imaginations, and make them think.
Letters and Sounds phonics sequence
Hero Academy is fully decodable with a fine phonic progression in line with the Letters and Sounds phonics sequence. This supportive phonics framework ensures the series is accessible to all students.
The free teaching resources on Oxford Owl include phonics charts listing grapheme—phoneme correspondences, high-frequency decodable words and common high-frequency exception words for each book. Support for assessment of the focus grapheme–phoneme correspondences is also provided.
