Designed by teachers to help children enjoy learning beyond the classroom.

Learn to read with Pip is a fun set of curriculum-led phonics games which help your child to enjoy learning beyond the classroom. This app is designed for children moving beyond the early stages of phonics in Reception and starting to master more complex sounds including digraphs (single sounds made up of two letters like 'ai' in 'train' and 'rain').

Your child will develop and improve their reading ability whilst remaining entertained and inspired.

This app will not run properly on an iPad 1.

Pip, our adventurous collector of letters and words, will lead your child through a rigorous series of great games, exciting exercises and cool challenges as they learn to read.
