During Phase 3, your child will have practised reading and spelling CVC words. These are words made up of a consonant - vowel - consonant. During Phase 4 your child will begin to read longer words with adjacent consonants. This is where two consonants are next to each other in a word. Unlike a digraph where the two letters make a new sound, the individual sounds can still be heard in words with adjacent consonants e.g. 'went' where you can hear that all four letters make a sound.
