Teachers and parents are regularly left flabbergasted by the rapid progress of students using our intrepid Knight’s mighty language recipes. 

Within a few hours of being introduced to Sir Linkalot’s introductory menu of words students have found their spelling practice has been transformed. 

His favourite dish, SPAGBOL (Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar Based on Linking) is particularly suitable for students between 7–13 year olds. 

Our educational app distils underused and overlooked mnemonic techniques, refined over years of school workshops and pupil transformations, into packs of whimsical ‘flashcard’ animations perfect to help spelling for kids.

Speed up learning, ace your tests

Perfect for boosting school lessons, assisting home schooling, and hitting UK national curriculum SPAG (Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar) criteria. Sir Linkalot takes the usual spelling games for kids, and gives them a fantastic twist.

Over a third of 11-year-old children don’t meet literacy test standards. We tested Sir Linkalot’s ‘SPAGBOL linking’ with over 600 students between the ages of 7–13 and found a 50%+ increase in test results, with less able students able to double their performance.

After phonics comes mnemonics

Sir Linkalot’s multi-sensory approach is truly effective over all age ranges and abilities. It 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. Useful for adults with dyslexia, or those going back to study as a grammar and spelling refresher.

We have improved reading in the last 18 months by over 3 years 9 months on chronological age, and spelling is just under that, across our KS3. We are now out of notice to improve and are one of the most improved schools on the South Coast. If your school uses [Sir Linkalot], then it's in for a treat.

Funny and engaging … my daughter in Year 2 can now spell ALL the red word spellings - pretty amazing since just two days ago she struggled with about ninety percent of them.

Really helpful and was excited to go on the link at home – I find spellings difficult but I achieved great results.
