Our tech team is working hard to make some improvements to the platform for September and we are excited to share them with you.
September updates include:
The process to set up classes will be made easier for School Leaders – they will be able to activate the classes they want based on data from their school MIS in a few clicks!
Tracking family engagement
We recognise that a parent has engaged in a topic as soon as they have done one of the activities and they will now get a green tick when they have completed one rather than all three activites. Plus families will now receive gold and silver stars for taking part in the activities – we hope this will help keep them motivated throughout the year!
Parents no longer need to create accounts
We recognise that creating an account can be a barrier to parents engaging in our topics and new digital reading log. Parents will no longer need to create accounts in order to access the topics and digital reading log as well as start receiving topic notifications/reminders from us. We believe this is going to have a positive impact on how many parents are able to access and engage with our programme.
Coming later next term...
Currently School Leaders can create intervention groups but we are working on some developments that will allow class teachers to do this as well as be able to create different groups for Maths, English and Reading.
PDFs in activities
Some of our activities may require you to print a PDF. It will be easier for you to identify which activities need them and you will be able to download them when you schedule the topic.
NEW for AY 23/24: Join our teacher panel
We know our programme works best when teachers have the opportunity to give feedback. We welcome feedback at any time in the regular calls or via email.
In AY 23/23 we are launching our Teacher Panel, this panel will meet throughout the year to view new developments and share feedback and ideas to improve the platform and programme. Email us to register your school’s interest.
