6 Levels - 200 Lessons - 2,000 words

Words are allocated to each level based on how familiar the word is to the age group, the level of difficulty with regard to the meaning of the word, and the level of difficulty in arriving at the correct spelling of the word. 
  • Levels are designed to overlap slightly and this is reflected in each lesson.
  • This ensure that pupils will have some success in identifying familiar words and are also introduced to more unfamiliar and challenging words. 
  • Pupils can start at a level that matches their current abilities and move to a higher level as they make progress.
