Pontnewydd Primary School, Wales

Used Giglets daily for 3-4 years

At pontnewydd the pupils love using Giglets. They love having their own account that they can use in school and at home. They enjoy having a record of books that they have read. They also love the theme music and fantastic illustrations!

Alice Wilkinson found Giglets:
  • Significantly saves school money
    Having a online resource is fantastic - We do not have to buy packs and packs of books for guided reading anymore! The books are far more engaging too!
  • Significantly reduces teacher workload
    Teachers no longer have to think of HOT questions themselves, they are already available to them after each book!
  • Significantly reduces attainment gap
    Giglets engages reluctant readers - we have seen a significant improvement in reading for pleasure since introducing the resource, leading to an improvement in attainment.
  • Significantly improves parent engagement
    Parents enjoy being able to use the resource at home. It helps those who may not have physical reading books at home.
  • Significantly improves attainment
    Pupil engagement.
