What Makes our Phonics Games Different:

  • Our games are easy on fine-motor skills. We want to test phonics not hand-eye coordination!
  • We cover every aspect of phases 2-5 of Letters and Sounds and all 26 units of Playing with Sounds.
  • Many games shy away from teaching tricky words, spelling and sentences – these are core to Phonics Hero alongside the sounds and blending.
  • Children are stopped from jumping too far ahead; we ensure competency at the basics before moving onto more complex content.

Our Games Come in Two Orders of Sounds:


Letters and Sounds:

Playing with Sounds:
