Wordshark Online: web-based games for reading and spelling

Product Type

Wordshark Online offers motivating games to address the serious educational task of reading and spelling. This new product has been developed for whole class/whole school teaching – not just for SEND and EAL… It is web-based, so that teachers and students can access it from anywhere, including on Chromebooks or iPads, at home as well as at school. Teachers can plan lessons when and wherever they want.  Once students are added to Wordshark and have been given their login details, they take a baseline test which places each student at the best starting point in Wordshark. They can then continue to work independently and move forward on their own individual learning journey. This gives teachers more time to focus on help where it is really needed. Wordshark offers great flexibility: you can use the Supershark course with its automatic progression, or use one of the other courses in your own way, or you can decice to set work for your students – or add your own words. Wordshark online has a new look, an easy-to-use interface, photos and videos, and new style reports.

Age neutral graphics are suitable for older students as well as the younger ones, with material ranging from simple 3-letter words through to challenging sets for very able spellers. Wordshark includes a spelling course for the National Curriculum 2014 (England), a structured Wordshark spelling course, high frequency words and everyday vocabulary lists.  A synthetic phonics approach is also offered. The program includes over 10,000 pre-recorded words, sounds, and photos/videos. Variable speeds and other options meet all grades of skill.

£270 per annum

There are multiple plans available depending on how many student logins (accounts) you need. The minimum is 30 student logins at £270+vat which includes the school closure discount offer of 3 free months (equivalent to 25% off.)

Trial Options
Paid trialOther duration3 months

To speed up your access to the program and get students started straight away (and reduce our admin as we create and manage free trials manually), we are no longer offering trials. Instead, we are focusing our resources on schools that sign up to Wordshark, offering 3 months free so your school only pays for 9 months of an annual subscription (equivalent to 25% off). If you need to see Wordshark before commiting, please book a free demo with us. We would love to show you the program.

All of the above options can be found here:

There is also an option to have your own free demo.

I was looking for something engaging and fun for covering those basic skills, but needed something that was particularly appealing for boys. .... I was so taken with the quality of the resource and the testimonials that I decided to purchase Numbershark as well!

I like Wordshark because I know it works. I have been using it for years and it's my 'go to' with children who need support with reading and spelling.

I became quite an ambassador for Wordshark/Numbershark (at my old school), recently building the Wordshark (network) licences up to 30. This was done by recording evidence in the children's work and using this as part of my performance management.
