Phonics spelling dictionary
This app orders words by sounds to help children master phonics and thereby reading and spelling skills too. 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 practice later in the 'My Words' section. The app also allows them to take spelling tests in preparation for spelling tests at school and it rewards hard work with exciting stickers!
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.
Say & Spell
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.
This app contains 34 rhyming pairs of words - 68 words in total. Children can use it to practise recognising rhyming letter patterns both aurally and in writing.

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.
My phonics flashcards
