Carter’s Yard Phonics Flashcards are a set of 64, interactive ‘talking’ flashcards that are used in classrooms throughout the UK. The fun, engaging, multi-sensory cards are the perfect phonics accessory for home and school.

Created by two passionate and experienced primary teachers, Carter’s Yard Phonics Flashcards are proven to support children as they progress from producing individual sounds to reading words and allow them to learn at their own pace, with or without input from an adult.

Teach Reading Using GameS

TRUGS (for teachers), TRUGS at home (for parents) is a systematic synthetic phonics group of resources to enable anyone, who can themselves read, to help a child/student to progress their level of reading/spelling. The structured decodable card games combines the professional phonics side of learning to decode print with the fun side of playing card games in a hugely, effective and engaging way. The pupils will be succeeding in a manner that captures their enthusiasm and achieves incidental learning.

My students LOVED these games.

Watch the TRUGS video for more information.

Mable Therapy

Looking for speech and language support in school?  Have a look at Mable Therapy.

The Mable online platform allows pupils and teachers to access our huge network of specialists whenever they need them.

Mable works on a credit basis, you pay for credits in advance and then exchange them for pupil screening, assessment, and therapy sessions.

  • Assessment session – 4 credits.
  • Therapy session – 1 credit.

One credit costs £40 and will provide:

  • 20-25 minute intensive therapy session for one pupil.
  • An accompanying report which will explain in detail the progress that has been made and any areas of difficulty that require further therapeutic intervention.
  • Follow-up activities for teaching staff.
  • Integrated CPD.
  • Whole school financial tracking.

Definitely a cost effective and practical solution to the shortage of speech and language therapy support available in most areas.




Fagus was developed for the students at Beech Lodge School, many of whom have difficulties with attachment and trauma-related difficulties.
Fagus provide devlopmental frameworks for the monitoring of social and emotional skills.
