What is Letterland?

Letterland is a unique, phonics-based approach to teaching reading, writing and spelling to 3-8 year olds. The Letterland characters transform plain black letter shapes into child-friendly pictograms and they all live in an imaginary place called Letterland.

Simple stories about the Letterland characters, explain the full range of dry phonics facts so that children are motivated to listen, to think and to learn. These stories explain letter sounds & shapes, allowing children to progress quickly to word building, reading and writing.

Whether you're a teacher in primary, elementary or first school, or an early years professional wanting to give your pupils a head-start - there's something for you and your learners in our range of over 100 great phonics titles.


  • Friendly letter characters provide strong visual memory clues (or mnemonics) so your children learn and retain phoneme/grapheme correspondences
  • Daily blending and segmenting activities make word-building fast and effective
  • Focused multi-sensory activities appeal to all learners and activate all learning channels
  • Built-in visual and verbal clues ensure correct letter formation, provide reasons for capitals and digraphs and reduce confusions like b/d, p/q, s/z, n/u and m/w
  • Easy-to-follow instructions in every school or early years title means less planning time and more fun with phonics in the classroom
  • The wide range of well-priced teaching and learning resources, which includes teacher's guides, readers, software, posters and audio CDs, ensures the scheme can grow as you wish
