Premium Add-on: Give Every Child a Phonics Hero Account

You are teaching Synthetic Phonics and seeing the children improve in leaps and bounds. To boost these improvements, you’ll also want to ensure the same principles are being reinforced at home and whilst children make use of the technology in your classroom.

How the Child Account Works:

The storyline

Children set off on a mission to rescue their superhero friends: Flight, X-Ray, Stretch, Speedy, Strong and Invisibility, who have been locked up by Dr. Lazy Bones. In Part, 2 children lock up the escaped baddies. And finally, in Part 3, children take on Dr. Lazy Bones to be crowned the champion of reading and spelling!

The skills being practised

To complete a level, children work through six essential Synthetic Phonics skills: knowing the sounds, reading, spelling, camera/tricky word reading, camera/tricky word spelling and sentence reading. Once they complete a level, the heroes are unlocked/the baddies are locked up/they are one step to closer to capturing Dr. Lazy Bones.

Motivating at every step

By playing the games children earn star points. At any point in playing, children can visit the Star Shop; to buy hover boots, shields and lots more! All these goodies are then hidden in the secret hideout. Additional star points can also be earned by clicking the superhero leader, Zak, when he turns up in the games.

HUGE variety of games

The games are wacky and a little bit… kooky; one minute children are feeding hungry tigers, the next they are spray painting the lambs and then there are those pesky flies to swat! The games are hugely varied to ensure children’s engagement.
