Learn 100 high frequency Sight words and help the Hairies jump to safety.

Sight words are words that appear frequently in most of the text we read but can't easily be sounded out.

Learn the first 100 high frequency Sight words and introduce Tricky words!

Tricky words are phonically irregular words that cannot be sounded out in your head, children need longer to decode these.

Knowing these words is essential – they make up half of all written material!

• Lower case keys help children to succeed.
• See a word, spell it and earn Hairies
• The yeti helper reinforces learning.
• Each time you spell a word you’ll collect 3 Hairies.
• Tricky words give pink Hairies.
• When you have enough Hairies play the game!
• Tap a Hairy to make it jump to the flag.
• Bounce on yeti bellies and escape from dangers.
• There are four mountains to climb and 12 levels of Hairy fun.

Brilliant idea. I use it at work and the game is loved so much it is chosen for reward time. Teaches spelling and typing while the children don't realise. – Tina Tortoise

These apps are amazing. I teach 5-6 year olds and they are top notch for developing areas a child struggling to read and spell will be weak in. – Mummy toot

Last mountain doesn’t work

Cannot climb the last mountain. Such a disappointment for my child!!! Was going to buy part 2 but if the first app is glitching then I’m not going to bother unless the developer fixes it!

Very disappointing

My daughter was totally motivated and excited to move to the next mountain, but could only access the first 25 words. What a shame that the app doesn’t deliver what is promised in the explanation.

Can only access 25 words! Total rip off!
