How well does it match the curriculum?

Well: It covers the curriculum as well as we expected

Links to most topics in the national curriculum. Doesn’t quite always match the coverage that we have in your chosen scheme


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

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

The content is accessible for all and then some other areas (SATs practise etc) have differentiated worksheets which accompany the content


How well does it engage and motivate pupils?

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

Children love how interactive the software is and it really enables children to be taken out of their comfort zone as they forget they are amongst other people


How well supported is it by any included formative assessments?

Reasonably: There is some formative assessment included, but its usefulness is a bit limited

I am unsure of whether there are any formative assessments included. It there is, I haven’t accessed them


How well does it support planning?

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

It links well to planning and we often use it as a hook to a topic or to review learning at the end.



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


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