We love EducationCity! Last year saw my class phonics screening results improve dramatically through EducationCity. The letters and sounds games were used during phonics teaching, and lessons to practice taught graphemes. The children love the games, and the engagement during whole-class teaching is 100%.”Tracy Sharp, Year 1 Teacher, Old Earth Primary School, Calderdale
