“The Bug Club Phonics programme offers a comprehensive phonic development package that can be completed in as little as 16 weeks, or extended to meet the needs of individual children and classes… The high quality resources offered as part of this programme provide invaluable support to help busy teachers ensure they are effectively developing phonics within their classroom and having a lot of fun at the same time.” -John Dabell, Primary Teacher and trained Ofsted Inspector, UK

  • "The children enjoy playing it so much that every time we sit on the carpet they ask me if we can play it, and they couldn't be better behaved when I tell them we're going to play it because they all want to be the one to have the next turn!” - Rebecca Williams, Badgemore Primary, UK
