About Orchard Toys
Orchard Toys have been making educational games and jigsaws in Britain for nearly 50 years. The emphasis is on ‘learning made fun’, meaning parents can benefit from our trusted educational values whilst children will have so much fun they’ll want to play time and time again! We are passionate about producing high-quality products with minimal impact on our environment. All our games and jigsaws are made from recycled board and paper from sustainable sources. Sturdy, wipe-clean game and puzzle boards mean our products will stand the test of time against wear and tear and messy hands, ensuring they can be passed down through generations.
Match and Spell Next Steps is the perfect progression from Orchard Toys’ bestselling, award-winning Match and Spell. Aimed at children aged 5 and over, the game helps to develop more advanced reading and spelling skills using both sounds and blends.
The game is played by building a variety of familiar and more advanced words, from ‘Moth’ to ‘Balloon’, with the help of colourful illustrations to identify words. Parents can use the sound and blend cards to encourage children to make the individual sounds as well as saying the entire word aloud. There are 18 words included in the game.
Once children become more confident, they can turn over the boards to use the blank side for a more challenging game. The game is finished once all the word boards have been completed.
This colourful game is a great way to teach children about spelling and phonics in a fun and progressive way. For younger children aged 4 and over, try our Match and Spell first literacy game.
