We want to revolutionise how teachers, children and parents approach reading, here's how...

Teachers

Let us take away the hours you spend creating high quality reading comprehension and reciprocal reading resources. We offer over 2000 quality assured comprehensions and reciprocal reading guides for a huge range of fiction and non-fiction for primary schools. Beyond worksheets we offer a game changing reading quiz website where any comprehension we offer, or those teachers create, can be set in seconds as an online reading quiz that pupils can access in or out of school. The icing on the cake is our automatic assessment system that pinpoints which content domains pupils are confident with and which they require support for - assessment data you simply can't get anywhere else!

Children

Move guided reading beyond just answering another comprehension worksheet and give pupils the power to create their own reading quizzes they can share with friends and teachers. Quiz creation is carefully scaffolded with 100s of question stems which pupils can select and use instantly. Incentivise reading with unique competition modes that bring children's love of gaming and competition to reading. Have questions read aloud and use our amazing avatars to help children decide how to answer questions!

Parents

Finally feel like you really are part of improving your child's reading: get involved in their homework, support their reading and questioning skills with our reciprocal reading guides that help pupils to understand how to answer questions and where the answers come from. No more paper reading records, our easy-to-use online reading record is quicker, easier and can't be eaten by the dog!

Independence, intuition, and innovation

Scaffolded learning

We believe that reading is just as much about pupil led learning as it is about teacher led learning. Pupils need to be allowed to ask questions about a book, to follow their interests and to generate their own answers to the questions they pose.

Communal

We have moved beyond the traditional model of teachers setting questions and children answering them to a collaborative approach where both teachers and children can create engaging sets of questions.

Independence, intuition, and innovation

Independence

We all want our children to be independent readers – readers who can navigate books for themselves, ask (and more importantly answer) their own questions and make purposeful use of books to broaden their horizons and improve their opportunities. Our platform allows children to independently access age appropriate questions, gain instant feedback to hone their understanding and create their own questions which they can effortlessly share with their peers.

Intuition

Intuition plays a large, but often overlooked, part in developing as a reader. We want children to be able to intuit an answer, to be able to use what they have read before to make leaps of logic that enable them to read deeper into a book and prise open its secrets. Our platform promotes deeper engagement with a text that helps secure the ability to make intuition one of the skills children have in their reading arsenal.

Innovation

Put simply, our platform is inherently innovative and exists to promote innovation, both at the micro and macro scale. Micro innovations happen every day with the children that access our platform: gaining the understanding that question domains dictate the type and length of answers, linking a character’s behaviour to their emotions or making a connection between words and intention. On the macro scale, it allows teachers to instantly set a whole class quiz and effortlessly access invaluable data, to transform how you approach reading in your classroom or to set you free from the task of creating yet another worksheet to being able to focus your attention, honing your approach to reading.

A fundamental part of our approach is our ever expanding sets of online quizzes, reciprocal reading guides and reading comprehensions. We call this our ‘Curated Collection’. It offers teachers access to ambitious, quality assured content that be used online or downloaded for use in the classroom or home. The Curated Collection represents many, many hours of valuable teacher time saved. Teachers can access and use our content instantly, simply sign up to access the whole of the Curated Collection.

Blended learning

The coronavirus has established the crucial importance of linking learning at home and at school. No longer is it enough for learning at home and learning at school to be viewed discreetly, they must be part of a homogenous whole. Being able to swiftly set tasks that sweep away the difference between learning at school and home empowers children to take charge of their own learning and parents to discover a level of engagement and involvement with their child’s learning they have never had before.

Lockdowns have brought to the front of educators, and leaders in education’s minds that we can harvest what lockdowns have taught us to make a leap forward in how to provide and view education. The tremendous benefits that come with making education move beyond the confines of the classroom are only beginning to become clear. Our unique platform allows you to harness this new view of education and instantly take reading out of your classrooms and into pupils homes, with no limitations or extra teacher workload.

Scaffolded learning

We believe that reading is just as much about pupil led learning as it is about teacher led learning. Pupils need to be allowed to ask questions about a book, to follow their interests and to generate their own answers to the questions they pose.

Ask any classroom teacher and they will be able to tell you they have lost track of the number of ‘extension challenges’ they have seen where pupils are asked to set their own questions. An idea that is brilliant in principle but, in practice, means pupils soon find themselves out of their depth. We have taken the principle of pupils generating their own questions and developed a completely custom system where pupils can access hundreds of different question stems tailored to the National Curriculum reading content domains. In minutes, they can go from being new to creating their own questions to creating searching, sophisticated questions that show their deepening engagement with a text.

Communal

Our platform is communal – we have moved beyond the traditional model of teachers setting questions and children answering them to a collaborative approach where both teachers and children can create engaging sets of questions.

Children can create and share quizzes rapidly, challenging each other and pursuing their own interests as they do so. This allows teachers to support and encourage children to develop their ability to generate and answer questions that they create – ensuring their deeper engagement with reading.

Our question creation engine doesn’t differentiate between teachers and children – everyone gets access to the same high level, quality assured question sets that allow for the creation of truly demanding questions.

Effortless assessment and tracking

Our assessment system allows effortless access to invaluable data sets that teachers and leaders have never had access to before. Our system automatically tracks and assesses children’s performance, their levels of engagement and their activity. However, we also offer instant assessment data that allows you to quickly judge children’s performance against each of the reading content domains, data that has never been accessible across all year groups before.

Our revolutionary assessment system tracks children’s performance in each of the reading content domains in each activity they take part in. We automatically perform QLA (Question Level Analysis) on the all the quizzes children complete, giving immediate access to rich data sets that offer supremely valuable insights into reading performance. We are proud to say that this approach to assessment lets teachers and leaders drill down into children’s performance in a way that has never before been available.

Safeguarding and security

More than ever, online platforms catering to children must offer the highest levels of security and safeguarding they can. Our model of allowing children to create and share their own reading quizzes demands a unique system: we want children to be able to share content immediately but know we must monitor and oversee the platform to ensure their safety. Our sophisticated system monitors all quizzes children create in real time. We use a filter to scan everything children produce and offer the option for individual teachers or schools to add custom terms to the filter in your school. This means that children can instantly share and publish their quizzes but any activity that our filter flags as potentially inappropriate is not published and is flagged for checking by an adult. Alongside this, any activity which is flagged for an adult’s attention means that we remove publishing rights for that user until an adult has checked their account and is happy to reinstate their publishing rights.

Our system ensures that we both encourage creativity and ensure the safety of every child that uses our platform.
