Our games have been developed with our partners from Manchester Metropolitan University’s Faculty of Education, so you can rest assured that they meet and cover all the phonemes, graphemes in the Year 1 Screening Check. We even have pseudo-words covered!
By making use of an Assess, Practise and Achieve model, we ensure that students are working at the right level and are making progress.
Students are engaged by an enchanting adventure, crazy characters, enthralling game modes, ultra competitive class competitions, school leaderboards for most effort & most improved, reward systems that encourage more use and trophies to display. All these features lead students to wanting to answer questions, explore new concepts or revisit known topics.
The more questions they answer, the more we know what questions to allocate and the more we can tell teachers with what area their class need help.
Phonics with Emile can be used alongside any Scheme of Work including Letters & Sounds and Read Write Inc.
Phonics with Emile engages young children to practice their reading based on the 6 phonics phases of Letters and Sounds.
In short, your students will want to do phonics!
They will want to try and read words to get to the next level.
They will ask to use Phonics with Emile to try and unlock new clothes for their tamagotchi.
They will beg their parents to use Phonics with Emile at home so they can compete safely with their peers.

The University of Manchester were given access to all the results and progress made within Phonics with Emile from February 2020 to May 2020. (All the data was of course anonymised in line with our Data Protection Policy and GDPR.)
The raw data showed that over a 12 week period, students increased the percentage of correct questions by nearly 10%.
This is impressive as the students will have been advancing through the phases at the same time as getting more questions correct.
We run demo’s almost daily for teachers throughout the year. They are a great way to see Emile in action and see if it’s right for your tutor group, school or MAT.
All teachers that attend a demo will get a free trial of Emile.
