Bloomsbury is delighted to announce the launch of six new spelling Apps for primary school kids by popular curriculum expert and ex-headteacher Andrew Brodie. The ‘Let’s Do Spelling Apps’ feature hundreds of words for children to practise all carefully matched to the latest National Curriculum wordlists and are perfect preparations for SATs.

The Spelling Apps cover six age ranges: 5-6, 6-7, 7-8, 8-9, 9-10 and 10-11. They are split into bright and interactive sections all with inbuilt audio, including ‘Learn, Write, Check’ where children can practise spelling words at different difficulty levels and ‘Progress tests’ where children can have a go at spelling words in context. There’s an opportunity for children to record their own quiz and then have fun testing their friends and family. A handy progress screen shows at a glance how well you are getting on and what you still need to practise.

“The App is child friendly, engaging and supports the teaching of National Curriculum spelling rules. A must have app for primary school teachers and children.” John Bee, Computing Manager, South Street Community Primary School, Gateshead.
