A great free resource which engages children with its quiz-like questions
How well does it match the curriculum?
Well: It covers the curriculum as well as we expected
It has questions for each year group on a good range of topics
How well does it support your school’s inclusion/diversity/equal opportunities policy?
Well: The content is inclusive and sensitively presented
The questions can be used for discussion and learning
How well does it support differentiation for the full range of the classes you use it with?
Reasonably: You can choose a different year group so children can access questions
How well does it engage and motivate pupils?
Well: Pupils generally enjoy using it and tend to welcome doing so
The children like the quiz-style questions
How well supported is it by accompanying formative assessments?
Reasonably: There is some formative assessment included, but its usefulness is a bit limited
It can give you data if you use the full version I only use the free one
How well does it support planning?
Well: It’s fairly self-contained and can be used with minimal preparation
Good for assessment to identify next steps
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
I believe children can access it from home to practice
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
I only use the free version
