Phonics Spelling Dictionary

Improve reading and spelling with phonics

The app orders words by sound to help children using synthetic phonics to become proficient readers and spellers. The words are organised by sound and broken up into coloured sections and the app features fun illustrations and interactive audio feedback throughout to help the user engage as they learn. They can also save words to practise later in their very own My Words section, collect stickers, and test their skills using the spelling test feature.

My Phonics Kit App

Entertaining games that help young children learn phonetic sounds

5 quick and fun word games to help young children develop early reading skills in advance of the UK government's national phonics screening check for 6-year-olds. It’s a fun and tactile way to practise reading and sentence construction.

Fun With Words

Focus on recognising common words by sight

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 on the app are designed to help your child quickly recognise and read the words, building reading confidence, whilst having fun at the same time. As well as the games, the app has a free play mode where you can scroll through the entire card set to consolidate learning.

My Phonics Flashcards

Learn the different ways that sounds can be written

The app is a fun, unique, and engaging way for children to practice their letters and sounds, as they do in school. Playing My Phonics Flashcards will help children to learn that one sound can be represented in several ways (e.g. 'ai' as in rain, make, way, angel, break), blend sounds to read words, and develop memory and concentration skills.

Alphabet Games

Practise with letters and sounds to improve speech and writing

An enjoyable way for children to practice recognising the letters and sounds of the alphabet, both aurally and in writing. The games are appropriate for children who know the letters of the alphabet and how they sound when spoken out loud (for example ‘a’, ‘b’, ‘k’, not ay, bee, cee etc). Before playing the games, you can check your child’s familiarity with the alphabet by scrolling through the “all cards” section.

Rhyming Games

Learn to start recognising rhyming words

This app contains 34 rhyming pairs of words, 68 words in total. Children can use it to practice recognising rhyming letter patterns, both aurally and in writing. The words can be read by children who know the sounds of the letters of the alphabet, plus the sounds made by combinations of letters: ch, sh and ck. In addition to the simple three letter words like cat, there are a number of four letter words which begin or end with two consonants, like tent and twin.

Say and Spell

Start recognising and spelling some simple words

Say & Spell helps children to practice recognising the initial sounds of words, and to start spelling simple words. There are three different games on the app: fishing, memory game and word builder. These will help your child to develop memory and concentration skills as well as helping them to recognise sounds and spelling.

Word Games
