Bug Club has the best characters!

Students develop their literacy skills in the company of many characters they already know and love from children's books, television and film. Starring characters include Shaun the Sheep™, Angelina Ballerina™, Star Wars™, Wallace and Gromit™ and many more familiar faces.  

Bug Club also includes its own specifically developed books for phonics. Phonic Readers allow students to learn and apply phonemes and graphemes, and segmenting and blending. Phonic Fiction Readers are enjoyable stories ideal for boosting students' confidence when practising and consolidating phonics skills.
