Caryn, Primary School Teacher: Some of the activities were difficult for the pupils compared to book level.
Nicky Turner, Class Teacher: Absolutely wonderful resource all round. I only give it 9 as it doesn’t cover all topics/genre YET! I appreciate the library is constantly growing! The training provided is second to none also.
Samantha Lindsay, Acting Principle Teacher: I love the visuals and music sounds which come with the books. Pupils really engage with learning through their iPads and enjoy completing the assigned activities.
