Letterland was created to teach phonics using a story-based approach. The story logic engages students leading to long term retention of concepts. What's more, Letterland is wonderfully multi-sensory. It activates every learning channel through music, actions, alliteration, movement, song, art, games and role-play.
"When I first came to the school and we were tracking our results, we were at 63%. We are now at 88% for our phonics screening results which nationally is 81%, so it’s had a tremendous effect."

Letterland's educational books, software and games have helped children learn to read, write and spell confidently in over 111 countries.
Much research has been done to understand the way we learn. This analysis supports the use of characters and actions to teach phonics.
Letterland correlates with the requirements of the UK National Curriculum and meets the DfE criteria for effective synthetic phonics teaching.
Letterland publishes award-winning Early Years and Key Stage 1 resources for teaching foundational literacy skills, phonics, spelling and grammar.
