Summary of Professional Review
Phonicshark 4 is an interactive resource which helps the teacher to deliver the DfE programme Letters and Sounds, focusing on the teaching and learning of synthetic phonics. The program uses the same language and phonic phases so it is easy to see the correlation. There are a number of games that are highly interactive, which would ideally suit whole class/group whiteboard teaching, although they could be used on an individual basis. The teacher is able to select what the child has access to, and can print resources such as word lists to help. Some of the icons are a little old fashioned. However, the games are fun and engaging. The program is ideally aimed at Foundation Stage /Key Stage 1 but could be used as an intervention program for older users. This is a good program to either deliver phonics in its entirety or to complement the Letters and Sounds programme.
