Bug Club Phonics provides comprehensive lesson plans with embedded assessment and consolidation.

In addition to end-of-unit and phase summative assessments, appropriate and informal assessment opportunities are offered in the daily lessons and through fun games in the online world.

With online reading games, worksheets for writing practice, printable flashcards, books and eBooks to read, there’s plenty for your children to enjoy independently.
