Spellbook is the first spelling app from Mr Thorne Productions, the team behind the Mr Phonics / Mr Thorne Does Phonics apps which have had huge success on Youtube and the App Store around the world.

Mr Thorne's Spellbook is educational and fun. 101 spelling tests based on the order of teaching letters and sounds, beginning with s, a, t, p, i, n, m and so on, leading onto digraphs and trigraphs such as 'ch' and 'air'. Finally the spellings become more challenging, for example, the /er/ sound in 'earth' and the 'silent u' in 'building'.

The player is encouraged to listen to the word and spell the word correctly, sometimes using capital letters too!

Score 10 out of 10 to unlock the safe. Open the safe to obtain the treasure.

Game structure: The words in each game are in sync with a child's ability, so the 's' level will not have the word 'start' because the 'ar' words are in a later level. The 's' level instead features words that are easy to blend and read: 'sat', 'sip'.

There are some levels which feature 'HFW' - high frequency words (words that don't always sound how they are spelt) like 'was' and 'people'.

Can you find all 101 treasures?

Absolutely awesome way to learn


As a mum n trainee teacher I will say one thing now you will not get your Ipad back once your own children and classroom get on this app. My kids loveeee it, 5 year old thinks it is my best purchase so far on App Store which says it all about this app. Big up to Mr. Thorne, when the children get rewarded with badges it makes them more keen to slow down spell correctly and that's where they are challenged without them even noticing. Fabulous for such a small price to pay spellings can be so much fun who knew !!!!!

Absolutely Brilliant!

This new spelling app is FANTASTIC!
I can't recommend it enough. My children aged 5, 7 and 8 are so obsessed with it that they are literally fighting over the iPad!! There are different spelling levels which suit all of their ages and learning how to spell has never been so fun :-) In my opinion, this is the best spelling app currently on the market.
PS. There is absolutely nothing wrong with the sound…. if you can't hear anything, it's because your device is on mute!!!



I was lucky enough to win the 'Spellbook 2' app in a giveaway and was so impressed I bought the first one! My students who struggle with spelling find this app engaging and will sit for ages listening really carefully to the word and really thinking about how the word is spelt so that they win the prizes.

I would highly recommend. Great quality and easy to use. FAB!
