Sir Linkalot is an award-winning spelling app that is revolutionising how to spell hundreds of tricky words, all the way from Was, They and One up to Fulfil, Manoeuvre and Onomatopoeia. It is not solely for spelling. It also covers the whole technical requirements of English, i.e vocabulary, homophones, punctuation, grammar, rules and patterns. Sir Linkalot is kindly giving all parents and schools FREE access during lockdown to enable children of all ages to practise at home. Once you have downloaded it from the App Store - search Sir Linkalot (there's a small problem with Androids at the moment - unfortunately), tap on the log icon (for 'Log in') at the top right, clicking on ''Have an access code?''. The word 'Free' is both the username and password. You can also view it on a laptop or PC. Type in the browser itself (not a search engine) app.sirlinkalot.org and follow the above instructions (the log icon is for 'log in').
