A more detailed tracking and monitoring system would be excellent. Also we have found some of the books a little inappropriate.

Reply from Giglets:Thanks so much for your review Shona. We’re delighted that your pupils at Gargieston Primary School are finding Giglets texts engaging! We’re happy to tell you we’ve recently added some additional tracking and monitoring features which we hope you will find helpful. Sorry to hear that some of the texts don’t suit your learners. We aim to provide a wide variety of different genres and themes of texts to engage all learners. This includes everything from comedy to horror and we do our best to provide comprehensive overviews for teachers so that they can make informed choices of which texts to assign to their pupils.
Shona Lawson found Giglets:
  • Moderately improves attainment
    Motivation in reading due to age specific books with interesting subjects brightly designed. Children have enjoyed the books they have been allocated and motivation is increased.
  • Moderately reduces attainment gap
    We have reduced numbers of children not on target
  • Moderately reduces teacher workload
  • Does not save school money
    We still have another core resource. This is for choice.
  • Slightly improves parental engagement
