Fun With Words

Who’s it for?

Designed for children of any age who are keen to improve their reading and spelling.

What does it do?

An enjoyable way for children to practice reading common words by playing games. It contains 49 high frequency words that children need to learn to recognise by sight. The 3 different games are designed to help your child quickly recognise and read the words, building reading confidence, whilst having fun at the same time.


Fishing Game

Get even better at reading

Help Biff catch the words. 6 flashcards are shown on screen and a word is played. Tap on the word that was read out to add it to Biff’s bucket. A more advanced game for children who can read or sound out a full word.

All cards

Record and listen back to reading

Familiarise yourself with the words in the app, flipping through the all cards section. A microphone button lets you record your children so that they can listen back to the words as they’re reading them. Use the cards as a prompt for reading or spelling tests outside of the prescribed app games.

Word builder

Learning to spell

One of the words on the flashcards will be split into separate letters. An audio prompt will play. Rearrange the letters into an order to make the word that was read out. A game for children who are starting out with learning to spell.

Memory game

Reinforcing reading skills

12 cards will be shown face down. Tap on the cards to help Biff, Chip and Kipper find all six matching pairs. This game reinforces reading skills through example audio.
