A comprehensive set of Phonics games for emerging readers of all abilities. These follow commonly accepted progressions through initial letters, digraphs, consonant patterns and alternative spellings and pronunciations.

The games are ideal as lesson starters or for pupils to play, individually or in small groups, at a stage that suits their ability.
