Games and Apps for the Phonics Screen Check

As the Phonics Screening Check for Year 1 approaches, we thought it might be useful for parents to try some online games and apps to help the children prepare for the short test.

Note to parents: All children and young people must be supervised at all times while using the Internet and all digital devices. You may wish to check the websites or apps first before you allow your child to access them.
