What do I get when I buy chatterbox?
Chatterbox contains a range of topics to reinforce learning across the curriculum. In each topic, students will play through a list of terms, each one associated with a graphic and pronounced by one of our voice artists. After this 'Practice' section, the students play various games, of varying levels of difficulty, in order to help reinforce and contextualise the words they have learnt. Our games include flashcard activities, speaking games and memory games.
How extensive is chatterbox?
With categories from insects to mathematical shapes, our resources cover topics from nearly all Primary curriculum areas: English, Maths, Science, Art and Design, Computing, Design and Technology, Languages, Geography, History and Music.

Does it teach you all you need to know?
Chatterbox is designed to help your pupils by presenting new information in a fun and engaging way. It enables them to learn and absorb facts, names, concepts and important terms - the essential building blocks they need to help reinforce their understanding of the subject you are teaching.
What about teaching languages?
The chatterbox language programme offers over 117 languages, including French, Spanish, German, Latin and Chinese. Click here to see the full list.
Children learn 8 topics (with more being added all the time) of beginner, everyday vocabulary through a process of listening to native speakers, associating images with words, and playing games to reinforce what they've practised.
Can students access chatterbox from home?
Yes. Each student will have their own login and will be able to access the programme from home, as well as in class.
What age group / ability is chatterbox aimed at?
Chatterbox is a primary school product, which can be used from Year 1 up to Year 6.
Can I check the students' progress?
Yes! As the teacher, you'll have your own profile and you'll be able to track each individual's progress- their scores in every game, the numbers of attempts they have made, the time taken for them to achieve full marks. This means that you can set individual students tailored challenges, as well as setting broader goals for the whole class.
