The Levelling System is a special system dedicated to grouping Alphablocks and Numberblocks episodes into five colour-coded levels depending on the difficulty of each episode.

There are 219 episodes in total, separated between these five levels, and here is a list of which episodes are in which level, and why that is.

The five levels will also be explained in each list.

Red Level One

"Level one is all about recognising the sounds that each letter makes. Children meet the letters in an order that allows them to start making words straight away − using sounding out and blending skills: saying the sounds that each letter makes and blending them together to make words. This level also helps children master the key skill of segmenting, breaking words they hear down into letter sounds." - Alphablocks

"Level 1 introduces the first five numbers and foundation skills including counting, recognising amounts on sight, comparing and sorting numbers and simple addition and subtraction." - Numberblocks

Orange Level Two

"Level two introduces the less common letters and rounds out the alphabet. Once your child knows all their letters and letter sounds, they can enjoy making and reading lots of simple words. They'll also meet the capital letters and letter names." - Alphablocks

"Level 2 takes us up to ten, developing the foundation skills and introducing number bonds, odds and evens, square numbers, number patterns, shapes and more." - Numberblocks

Yellow Level Three

"Level three introduces children to letter teams − two letters that join to make one sound, such as sh and ch, oo and ee. These are also known as digraphs. And they meet three-letter teams, such as igh and air − also known as trigraphs." - Alphablocks

"Level 3 takes us past ten with numbers who discover place value, doubling and halving, multiplication, division, factors and new number patterns." - Numberblocks

Green Level Four

"Level four is all about letter blends − two consonants that make both of their sounds when they appear together (instead of a new single sound). Blends can be at the start of a word (such as st-, bl- or tr-) or at the end (such as -nd, -mp and -sk ). And there are three letter blends too: (such as spl- and str-) They are also known as consonant clusters." - Alphablocks

"Level 4 helps children become number explorers, discovering how the number system works and developing all their skills with two-digit numbers." - Numberblocks

Blue Level Five

"Level five is a big step − time to discover that there are different ways to make the long vowel sounds. We meet Magic E, who shows how split digraphs work: a vowel and e combine to make the long vowel sound (such as a-e in cake and o-e in home). And children complete their journey from meeting the alphabet to reading words like 'alphabet' with confidence." - Alphablocks

"Level 5 builds confidence in working and playing with numbers up to 100 and offers a sneak peak of how much bigger numbers work." - Numberblocks
