Review of Giglets

Used Giglets weekly for 0–3 months

Feb 2022

Giglets has been really useful particularly for our SEND and EAL pupils who have found it more difficult to engage either with texts that are not in their own language, or have SPLD and found the text types and vocabulary in a number of books difficult to access. The fact the books are on line is an added bonus for a number of our reluctant boys!

Jo Marchant found Giglets:
  • Significantly saves school money
    Having an online resource of multicultural texts has been a huge saving in terms of not having to buy individual texts in a multitude of languages.
  • Significantly reduces teacher workload
    Previously teachers would have to try and find our dual language texts around the school, borrowing from each others classrooms
  • Slightly reduces attainment gap
    Too soon to tell
  • Moderately improves parent engagement
    Our EAL parents have really enjoyed engaging with texts in their own language and some are reading more with their children.
  • Slightly improves attainment
    Too soon to say
