Vocabulary is the biggest indicator of academic potential
The more rare words your child knows, the higher their reading and writing age, and the better they'll do at school.
Children learn better visually, and a word-a-day habit is the best way to build a strong vocabulary. Learn together in minutes a day: at breakfast, on the move, before bed.
Hilariously illustrated by the Emmy award-winning artists behind Madagascar. This is research-backed word learning that works
What our customers say
The programme integrates words based on what children need to not only strengthen their vocabulary and reading skills but their writing skills as well. Integration is key.
Mrs Wordsmith stands out from the crowd because they have created an intuitive and visually stunning dictionary that children and schools love.

It is 100% research-based and we have found that practising word pairs not only helps with remembering words, but increases fluency in writing as well.
We have been learning with Mrs Wordsmith over the last term. In every English lesson we have a word of the day. Some of the type of words we have had are eye words, beautiful words, big and fat words and small and thin words. Mrs Wordsmith is really fun to use and every time we have a new word we have to say what the word is the same as or something that goes with that word.
