In Phase 4 we are not learning any new sounds (phonemes). 
However we are learning to blend two or three consonants together. (i.e sp, spin or nt, went) which can be tricky and easily missed out when spelling or reading.  They are still individual sounds, you just need to master hearing & saying them, so you do not end up writing...

We use all the knowledge we have gained from the sounds in phase 2 & phase 3 to read and write more words.
