Pearson’s Bug Club family encompasses Bug Club Independent, Phonics, Shared Reading, Grammar and Spelling. We want all children to be able to develop a lifelong love of reading, and to feel that our books are for them.
….. And now Pearson are making Bug Club even better! Alongside over 200 existing fiction and non-fiction print books, comics, and graphic novels, we're adding 93 brand-new titles to Bug Club Independent. These new titles are written by a diverse team of authors and introduce well-known and family-favorite Disney characters to help all children feel that our books are for them, whatever their ability, background or identity.
Bug Club Phonics was validated by the DfE in July 2021. Being validated means that a systematic synthetic phonics programme has been judged by an independent panel to meet all of the Department for Education’s core criteria for an effective systematic synthetic phonics programme. It also means Bug Club Phonics is eligible for English Hubs funding and Recovery Funding, It has been used by many teachers across the country.
