The letter sounds are taught in the same order as in school, using the same approach as the national curriculum. There is the option of a UK voice (a primary school teacher) so your child can learn the sounds as spoken in the UK, not in the US. PocketPhonics visually demonstrates how to write each letter. Children can practice their writing by tracing the letter with their finger. There is also a parent zone with tips and help. NOTE: This app has a monthly subscription, which begins after the free trial - so please be aware when purchasing it.
