Timmy’s Starting to Read includes three bite-size and age-appropriate games that are designed by British Council English teaching experts to provide hours of high-quality learning content for your child and challenge them as they progress.
• In Hatch Match, your child will build confidence in reading simple vocabulary as they match pairs of pictures with words. They can also choose between three levels of difficulty, depending on how strong their reading skills are.
• In I-Spy, your child can find hidden objects on the beach, such as bucket, spade or fish, as well as revise vocabulary, boosting their concentration. As they progress, objects get harder to find, requiring serious focus!
• In Rub-a-Dub, your child will be guided by the narrator to swipe away sand and beach towels to discover objects such as cake and pizza hidden beneath. Tapping and swiping away the holiday-themed scenes will develop their motor skills and hand–eye co-ordination.
