Used Giglets monthly for 1-2 years

Giglets allows for home working as well as school tasks. It is easy to navigate and encourages independent learning. Pupils enjoy the books as they have colourful illustrations and music. A very helpful feature is the audio, allowing pupils to hear and see the words while reading.

Reply from Giglets:Hi Aileen. Thank you so much for taking the time to write us a review. We're very glad you and your pupils find Giglets easy to navigate and appreciate the audio. If you ever need any help using Giglets, do just give us a message on Best wishes, The Giglets Team
Aileen Wood found Giglets:
  • Does not significantly save school money
  • Moderately reduces teacher workload
    Close reading & higher order thinking skills questions are already prepared.
  • Moderately reduces attainment gap
    I found that Giglets stories & tasks kept pupils engaged during lockdown and also allowed for independent working. This meant that pupils with literacy difficulties were able to maintain, and improve, their literacy skills.
  • Slightly improves parent engagement
  • Moderately improves attainment
