Brilliant tool to encourage reading for pleasure, the reading comprehension tasks are linked to WG assessments, digital element engages most pupils, listened to read aloud helps EAL pupils.

J Horner found Giglets:
  • Moderately improves attainment
    The digital element means that pupils are more engaged. Being able to listen to the book read aloud has helped EAL pupils' language acquisition. Pupils can read books suited to their individual abilities. Bilingual books have engaged EAL learners.
  • Moderately reduces attainment gap
    The reading test questions have helped familiarise pupils with the WG reading assessment questions.
  • Moderately reduces teacher workload
    Resources (conscience alley, ABC grid) are readily available to print or display in class. Giglets tasks, adapted for each book, are available immediately.
  • Moderately saves school money
    We use significantly less paper for comprehension tasks than without Giglets.
  • Slightly improves parental engagement
    EAL parents are able to facilitate reading from home easier.
