Review rating:

Average rating across all Education City reviews: 3.9/5

How well does it match the curriculum?

Well: It covers the curriculum as well as we expected

Good for practising at home


How well does it support adaptation for different groups of pupils?

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

Use it for all learners to stretch or consolidate learning where needed


How well does it engage and motivate pupils?

Reasonably: We can’t use it too often or for too long

Would be good to see more of a variety of learning activities


How well supported is it by any included formative assessments?

Badly: There isn’t any / enough formative assessment or what there is, isn’t very useful

Not aware of any


How well does it support planning?

Well: It’s fairly self-contained and can be used with minimal preparation

Links with my personal planning and school curriculum


How well does it support home use / independent learning?

Well: Pupils could be expected to use this at home or independently, with a minimum amount of support or additional resources

Use the resources for home learning


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

Well: It’s worth the money and effort to introduce – more so than many similar resources I’ve seen

Offers value for money


Would you recommend it to a colleague in a similar school to yours? 8/11
