Pave the way to phonic success with a trip down Phonic Street with Millie and Mike (and their tandem bike). This fun, interactive, educational app uses a busy high street as the context for developing phonic awareness and understanding.

With 7 different levels to complete, all focussing on different key phonic skills, there are lots of people to meet and places to see! Practice grouping together rhyming words at the construction site, identifying initial sounds in the post office, recognising simple words in the art gallery and a whole lot more. The tasks cover all the fundamental aspects of synthetic phonics including digraphs, trigraphs, decoding, blending, segmenting and tricky words.

The 7 levels draw upon the key principles of the Letters and Sounds programme but they are also relevant to many other phonics programmes.

For a comprehensive outline of each level please see the info page on the app.

This high-quality app has been created by the team behind Early Learning HQ, the early years teaching website site that offers thousands of free downloadable teaching resources: We work closely with experts from within the early years education sector to provide beautifully designed, high-quality materials that aim to inspire and educate young children…and we have used exactly the same process to design our first app!

The first 2 levels of the app are completely free! The other 5 level can be accessed with a single low cost in-app purchase.
