Phonic Word Builder

Visit the Phonic Factory, where children are encouraged to use a selection of machines to assist with the learning of phonic skills, reading, spelling and sentence building.

This program supports the Literacy Hour and is divided into sections with bright and colourful interactive screens, where the child is motivated to construct words using the wide vocabulary included, for teaching phonics, as well as completing simple sentences.

Ideal for Key Stages 1 and 2, spoken instructions are included throughout making this software suitable for unsupervised use. The activities used can be fully customised, allowing the teacher to easily build sets of words suitable for an individual child or class.

Key features:

  • Great for independent use.
  • Create your own word lists to help spelling.
  • Help with spelling, phonic skills & simple sentence building.
  • Fun games, with bright and colourful screens.
