Binder and Inserts

Your child will build and own a collection of words for life, a month at a time. No more cramming, no more forgetting, no more 'here today, gone tomorrow'.

The Benefits

All of our journeys are directly relevant to what children learn in school, and are designed to drive achievement across the curriculum, and throughout their daily life.

Boosting literacy

Giving children the tools to express themselves more richly, and meet the increasing demands of the classroom.

Accelerating reading and writing age

Children learn new words in context, helping them to understand and retain them more efficiently and effectively.

Developing word consciousness

A vital skill for helping children notice and become curious about new words, so that they use them at school and at home.

Bringing words to life

Research shows that children learn easier and faster when information is presented visually.

What teachers 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.”

Primary teacher

“Mrs Wordsmith stands out from the crowd because they have created an intuitive and visually stunning dictionary that children and schools love.”

Professor Ted Briscoe

Professor of Computational Linguistics at the University of Cambridge

“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.”
