The phonics battle challenge!


In partnership with the National Literacy Trust, we will be running a live event with MC Grammar on Thursday 6 July!

You can sign up for free to the event here.

This challenge and event will bring awesomely-active phonics activities into your classroom to help motivate your pupils and support them in their learning.

MC Grammar was created by award-winning teacher, Jacob Mitchell; what started in his primary school classroom as simple songs and rhymes turned into activities such as books being blended with funky beats and unforgettable melodies!

Don’t forget to share your completed challenge with us by sharing them on @PLCommunities using #PLPrimaryStars or emailing them to
