Department of Education Approved Learning Apps 

 A number of educational apps for two- to five-year-olds have received a stamp of approval from the Department for Education, to encourage parents to boost their children’s learning at home in speaking, writing and reading.

 The six apps are: 

  • Lingumi (For two- to five-year-olds): Sets of learning games, speech recognition games and video-based games to help with a child’s grammar and getting them speaking their first words early on.
  • Kaligo (For three- to five-year-olds): Handwriting
  • Phonics Hero (For school-aged children): Over 850 fun, varied and motivating games take a child step-by-step through the 44 sounds, the reading and spelling of words, and how to conquer sentences.
  • Teach Your Monster to Read (For school-aged children): Covers the first two years of learning to read, from matching letters and sounds to enjoying little books.
  • Navigo Game (For school-aged children): Focuses on developing skills that underpin reading, including phonics and letters and sounds.
  • Fonetti (For school-aged children): The world’s first ‘Listening Bookshop’ interacting with children by giving visual cues in real-time as they read aloud and highlighting where the most support is needed.
