Perfect for boosting school lessons, assisting home schooling, and hitting UK national curriculum SPAG (Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar) criteria.

Get near-instant results with this powerful way to learn spelling, punctuation and grammar (SPAG) for school spelling tests, and as practice and revision for SATs. Sir Linkalot's multi-sensory app improves spelling for students of all ages.

Over a third of 11-year-old children don't meet literacy test standards. Students using our app typically improve their spelling scores by 70%, with a 150% improvement for those who find learning tricky.

The Sir Linkalot app uses spelling animations, quizzes and puzzles to improve literacy with: ▸ spelling ▸ vocabulary ▸ homophones ▸ etymology ▸ rules & patterns ▸ punctuation ▸ grammar.



Word bundles are sorted into difficulty level and subject area, and contain 20 animations plus two tests: crossword spelling challenge and multiple-choice questions. Each bundle is named after a famous literary figure in history including: Spaghetti Shakespeare, Diarrhoea Dickens, Broccoli Bronte, Weird Wordsworth, Patient Potter, Anxious Austen and Colon Conan Doyle.

A Premium subscription (monthly at £6.99, or a 1-week free trial with yearly membership at £49.99) allows full access to our word bundles. Payment is charged to your Apple ID account after the trial period. Subscriptions automatically renew unless cancelled over 24 hours prior to the subscription period. Manage or cancel your subscription in your App Store account settings.


SPAGBOL (Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar Based on Linking) is suitable for 4–18 year olds (and beyond!). Our App features whimsical 'flashcard'-style animations to teach mnemonic devices — refined over years of school workshops and pupil transformations — that are perfect to help spelling for kids and adult students.


▶ For students:

▸ Entertaining and hilarious flashcard-style animations teach you fast.
▸ Max your ALF (average last five) quiz score.
▸ Become a better LIAR (extend your 'links in a row').
▸ Smash your spelling tests and share your scores with friends.

▶ For parents:

▸ Encourage your child with bitesize learning sessions.
▸ Join in the fun to beat repetition and embed difficult facts and figures.
▸ Especially effective for children with special education needs (SEN) and specific learning difficulties (spLD), including dyslexia, ADHD and autism.

▶ For teachers and schools:

▸ Support your in-classroom learning and take-home practice.
▸ Use it to revise the spelling of 100s of tricky high-frequency English words in the UK's national curriculum.
▸ Complete a crossword spelling challenge in under two minutes.
▸ Multiple-choice spelling game to immediately test learning (core targeted for KS1, KS2 & KS3).

▶ Sir Linkalot's multi-sensory approach is truly effective over all age ranges and abilities:

▸ Covers pupils with different learning modalities, including more visual or auditory learning styles.
▸ 'Linking' aids the recall of any fact at a later date which could delay the onset of dementia.
▸ Life-changing for adults with dyslexia or those going back to study as a grammar and spelling refresher.

Updated review to Five Stars *****
I can’t fault the developer of this app. I had an error in one of the downloaded packs it was sorted within a few hours and I received a quick email reply updating me.
Great app which can be used for targeting spelling support where it is needed.

Developer Response ,

Hi Suzi111 — once we got a report of this test/results glitch we went to work to resolve this pronto. The system should update and be back working normally shortly. We hope you can check back on this, see that we value user feedback/bug reporting (and respond as quickly as possible), and update your review to take this into account. Thanks for your help, support and bug reporting!

Excellent app

A great app aimed at raising the standard in spelling for KS2 children. A fun and interactive way for the children to learn and practise their spellings. It covers majority of the Year 5/6 word list which really supports SATS revision in class. Would highly recommend for teachers and children to use at home.
