Review of Giglets

Buttington Trewern CPSchool, Wales

Used Giglets occasionally for 3-4 years

Feb 2022

Although it is a very good online reading opportunity- the disruption to school due to covid and varied engagement by staff , parents and pupils unfortunately hasn’t impacted as successfully as hoped.

Reply from Giglets:Thank you for your feedback, Colin. Your school being trained the week of lockdown was incredibly challenging and we’re glad that you found Giglets to be helpful during that time. We’re looking forward to working with you over the course of your subscription and helping you get the most of Giglets in the classroom and at home to ensure maximum impact.
