Busy Things hosts over 900 award-winning educational games and activities for children between the ages of 3 and 11. The phonics area is designed specifically to help teachers teach their pupils to read. Our fabulous collection of over 60 phonics games are all designed around the UK government-endorsed Letters and Sounds programme.
These aren’t the only educational games for schools we have to offer, either. There’s also a huge selection of activities to help your pupils develop their skills in other key areas, including geography, science, music and art, and maths games. All our games and activities are curriculum-linked.
Busy Things for Schools can be accessed at home on a computer, laptop or tablet.
Phonics games for early Key Stage 2
Older children playing our phonics games will soon learn that there is more than one way to spell the same sound! Our games will help them identify words that contain different spellings of the same sound, for example 'chain' and 'plane'.
As they progress children can have fun playing with reading captions, building simple sentences and recognising homophones and compound words!
