What is Rockerbox News?
Rockerbox News provides national curriculum-aligned, non-fiction reading comprehension platforms with online products designed for primary, secondary, and special schools.
Rockerbox News is proven to inspire reading confidence, a love of reading, and a thirst for knowledge in disadvantaged, EAL, SEND, and lower ability pupils.
Pupils can access their personal accounts (with newsfeeds that update daily) independently at school and at home. There are currently over 500 texts in Rockerbox News, across 5 DfE-aligned reading levels, and this number grows daily. Every article has a 'listen aloud' function and comes with a series of related comprehension questions and discussion points.
An online teacher reporting portal empowers educators with detailed engagement and progress reporting (including question level analysis), and the system significantly reduces teacher workload with task setting features and the automatic differentiation of texts.
Rockerbox News is most impactful when used in short, sharp bursts, integrating into (rather than disrupting) daily routines. The platform sparks every learner’s thirst for knowledge (adults included) and used during dedicated reading times, around the table as a family, or as independent screentime that’s educational and fun, Rockerbox News is designed to quickly lead to significant improvements in attainment, literacy, comprehension, vocabulary, global awareness, and confidence.
