Could do with more fluency questions

 

How well does it match the curriculum?

Well: It covers the curriculum as well as we expected

The presentation is lively and the questions increase in terms of difficulty

 

How well does it support your school’s inclusion/diversity/equal opportunities policy?

Well: The content is inclusive and sensitively presented

Pictures show a diverse selection of children

 

How well does it support differentiation for the full range of the classes you use it with?

Well: A large majority of resources are suitably differentiated for pupils

It certainly challenges the more able - more resources for our less able children would be helpful

 

How well does it engage and motivate pupils?

Well: Pupils generally enjoy using it and tend to welcome doing so

The children enjoy completing the questions

 

How well supported is it by accompanying formative assessments?

Well: We could (or do) use it for monitoring individual pupil progress

The end of unit tests are really helpful

 

How well does it support planning?

Brilliantly: It has everything you could need and is straightforward to use with classes

Everything is there on the website ready to use

 

How well does it support home use / independent learning?

Brilliantly: We’d have very few reservations about using this extensively to support home learning

The videos really help to facilitate this

 

How would you rate it for value for money compared to similar resources?

Brilliantly: It’s possibly the best value for money of any similar resources I’ve seen

Excellent value
