Whether your school is partially open, completely closed or returning to a ‘new normal’, Phonics Hero is here to support you.
Parents: if you are reading this, we offer free 7-day trials of Phonics Hero, independent of schools. You might also want to take a look at our worksheet packs and read my post about how I helped my child learn to read at home.
Every school can issue each child their own Phonics Hero login, for use at home or school on a computer, iPad or Android tablet. We have an obligation-free, 30 day trial which can be started at any time. Once your trial is up, your school can elect to purchase the accounts or parents can extend their child’s subscription by 6 months.
To set your students’ accounts up, log in (or sign up first) and hit ‘Trial Child Accounts’. If you get stuck, this quick video will show you how to do it:
If you are going to be teaching phonics lessons, either recorded or face-to-face, take a look at our click-and-go Phonics Lessons. They provide the structure and the content you need to run your phonics lesson. We have an obligation-free 30 day free trial. Take a look at our trailer:
To activate your trial, log in or sign up to a Teacher Account and click ‘Phonics Lessons’ in the menu on the left.
In your Teacher Account, you have access to over 200 free worksheets, covering all levels and skills. You can download these and send them to parents, or print them for your students to take and keep at home. Access them via the Learning Library in the Teacher Account.
If parents want to purchase the whole pack of over 200 worksheets themselves, for a very reasonable US$20, send them to our Playing with Sounds Worksheets (Australia and Hong Kong) or Letters and Sounds Worksheets (rest of the world).
Some parents may feel a little overwhelmed with the support they are required to give their children. These pages would be great to share with parents to hold their hand:
Please do not hesitate to get in touch on email@example.com if there is anything else we can do to help.

I am not a teacher. I am a parent.
My child’s school has closed due to the virus and I was given a user name and password by their teacher, so I could access this website to teach my child phonics while off school.
I can’t get it to work.
I’m so sorry to hear that! Can you send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your child’s username and password? Hopefully, we can get this sorted for you quickly.
We have been using Phonics Hero for both Kinder and now Year 1. Previously this has worked without any issues, but just tried to log on and the package doesn’t recognise our password. Can you assist please?
Hi Barbra, you should have received an email. Hopefully we can get this resolved for you quickly!
What would be an approx cost should we extend past the 30 day trial? Thanks
It really depends on how many students you have. If you send us an email on email@example.com with your details and we can send you a quote.
Will you be looking at extending the free trial whilst schools are closed due to Covid19?
We are a small company and, unfortunately, don’t have the ability to offer Phonics Hero completely free. That said, our priority is to make us accessible for every child and I believe we are very reasonable. Feel free to get in touch (firstname.lastname@example.org)
I have a parent who would like to pay to continue their child’s account once the school’s free access has finished. They don’t want to lose the progress they’ve made. Is this possible please?
Hi Lauren, it sure is. Please drop us an email on email@example.com and we will get you sorted.
Any chance I could download your app onto an Amazon Fire device?
Unfortunately the Phonics Hero app won’t work on an Amazon Fire device. We are compatible with many Android devices, iPads, and the games can be accessed by logging in on a computer (we recommend the Google Chrome browser).
How much is a school subscription?
We can tailor a quote to your school’s needs. Just fill out the form here and your area’s account manager will get back to you shortly! https://phonicshero.com/for-teachers/quote-school/
