Five Minute Box

The Five Minute Box is the multi-sensory phonics programme which enables the early identification of potential specific learning difficulties. The Box provides secure basic skills for reading, spelling and writing thus maintaining self-esteem and a more positive attitude to learning.


The Five Minute Box was designed within school settings to fulfil several purposes:

  • To screen all children on entering school at age 5 to ensure that none ‘slip through the net’ and to provide baseline data for school records.
  • To provide an easy to manage teaching system for any child who needed extra time to learn or to consolidate basic skills, managed by a Teacher/ Classroom Assistant for a few minutes a day.

The Number Box

The Number Box is a multi sensory teaching programme and maths resource. It was designed for those children who need support with maths for one of several reasons.

  • Dyslexic children find sequential skills, organisation and spatial operations in maths more challenging, and require resources and patient teaching.
  • Children who have receptive and expressive language difficulties may take longer to understand and use the complex maths vocabulary.

FIve Minute Box 2

Box 2 has been developed to build on and continue the established routines, skills and self-help strategies that have made The Five Minute Literacy Box (Box 1) so successful.

All activities are multi-sensory – “hear, see, say, write” for every task, making it ideal for any learner, especially dyslexic children or those with English as an additional language.

Box 2 covers the next stage of phonic development – consonant digraphs, triple digraphs, vowel digraphs, generalised spelling patterns, keywords 100 – 300, dictionary skills, auditory discrimination skills and most importantly transferring all the skills into confident writing.
