"This game is the absolute best quality phonics game I have come across for educational and fun value."
Marie Lewis, Rochdale

“My class have reaped loads of benefits from using the programme and the difference in some of their reading skills has been dramatic."
Maria Andrews, Foundation Phase Teacher

"This is a fabulous game. I'm not kidding when I say that my daughter essentially learned all her letter sounds using First steps, with relatively minimal input from me! Great for parents to practise their letter sounds too."

What's new in version 3.5
We've made improvements for you. Keep your reviews coming!

• Collectable stars can now be transferred between games. Save them up or spend them in the shop!
• Words are now easier to hear! We know that there can be a whole load of background noise in the home or classroom whilst playing, so we've made the words louder and clearer.
