"I implemented Sounds-Write in my Pre-Primary classroom after attending the course in Perth Australia. The children responded well to the program and made large gains in their spelling, reading and writing abilities. Every child made gains above what I expected. I have never had a group of 5 years old children so confident with phonics. The children thoroughly enjoyed the program and the language made the program explicit and easy to teach. "

- Mrs Katie Bogdanich, Pre-Primary Teacher, St Helena's Catholic Primary School, Perth, Australia

Sounds WriteSounds Write

App For iPad


The official app for the Sounds-Write Initial Code phonics programme, for learning to read and spell in English. This app is available exclusively for iPad (not, for instance, for iPhone or Android).

In February 2018 a major update (free to existing users) incorporated much of the feedback we have received and greatly improved the stability of the app in daily use. 

For young children to become fluent readers and spellers they need to rehearse and consolidate what they are learning. It is this, repeated over and over again, that enables their access to alphabetic code knowledge and skills to become totally automatic and internalised processes.

This app offers a variety of activities to develop the skills of blending and segmenting, sound spelling correspondence, word reading and writing and some sentences reading and writing.

The app introduces all the sound-spelling correspondences your child needs to learn to put them well on the way to learning to read and write.
