It’s a fantastic resources


How well does it match the curriculum?

Brilliantly: There is more content (eg support / extension activities) than we expected

Excellent resource that supports staff and children. The teacher videos support less confident staff.


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

Brilliantly: There is a wide enough range of resources to provide a good range of options for all pupils

Lots of differentiation on there and the pupil video makes it achievable for the pupils in each class.


How well does it engage and motivate pupils?

Brilliantly: Pupils love using and are excited when they know they are going to do so

Very motivating. Resources and available to download, the resource list is clear for teachers to prepare and the every lesson is engaging. Some lessons are pitched quite high with the expectation that the children have the skills already.


How well supported is it by any included formative assessments?

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

Lots of opportunities for assessment and all assessment materials are included on kapow.


How well does it support planning?

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

All planning is provided. It shows clear progressions and long term planning for the whole school. Very little extra work needs to be done.



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

Good prices and it’s discounted the more subjects you add. We currently subscribe to 3 subjects which gives us a good discount.


Would you recommend it to a colleague in a similar school to yours? 10/11
