What is Sir Linkalot?

Sir Linkalot is an award-winning spelling resource that is revolutionising how students learn to spell hundreds of 'Common exception words' from Was and They up to Accommodation and Onomatopoeia.

The combination of beautifully crafted brief, fun animations with catchy tunes and Sir Linkalot's voice-overs ensure that spellings are committed to memory. Other material include vocabulary, homophones, punctuation, grammar, rules and patterns with regular updates. The cherry on top is having Countdown's Susie Dent on the app as Susie Lexicographer telling you the etymology of certain words. A game-changer.

Recommended Usage

3x15m sessions (+ homework practice session).
