The English Department are pleased to introduce this year: Literacy Planet. As part of our commitment to providing high quality literacy education, your child now has a school subscription to this fun and engaging online resource.
It is designed to support students of all abilities with a wide variety of literacy skills such as comprehension, grammar and vocabulary, but in an engaging gamified environment. This provides children with a literacy learning experience that is interactive, motivating, rewarding and fun. Your child has a personalised avatar and profile; they can earn points, redeemable credits and rewards for participation; they can participate in multi-player games with their classmates in a safe and closed online environment; and earn a coveted place on global leader-boards.
Our students can access their LiteracyPlanet account on any internet connected computer or tablet device, so please encourage your child’s use of LiteracyPlanet at home to support their learning at school and for positive screen time.
We will be piloting the programme until Christmas to ensure that students are getting the most from it, so we would be interested in feedback comments from students and parents next half term.
