LISTEN to the narrator and practise saying the words aloud.
Timmy’s Learning New Skills includes three bite-size and age-appropriate games that are designed by British Council English teaching experts to provide hours of high-quality learning content for your child and challenge them as they progress.
• I-Spy – your child will search for hidden objects to learn new vocabulary, identify objects and boost their concentration. As your child progresses, objects get harder to find, requiring serious focus!
• Magic Box – your child will be guided by the narrator to organise items by type and colour. The game gets more and more challenging when we introduce multiple boxes, so that your child learns advanced sorting skills and is encouraged to make choices.
• Rub-a-Dub – your child will listen to the narrator and swipe away sand, buttons and paint to identify objects hidden beneath. The game starts with single words such as ‘pear’ and ‘pencil’ and builds up to complex phrases such as ‘three green paintbrushes’, so that your child is challenged as they advance.
