Oak Tree School chose LiteracyPlanet after identifying the need for teachers to have an easy access base for the teaching of the key skills of spelling, punctuation, grammar, reading and comprehension skills.
LiteracyPlanet has enabled teaching staff to have fun, game-based lessons around these usually dry aspects of the English curriculum, and set a rewarding type of homework that both parents and students engage with well.
Helping to expand the student's vocabulary acumen and phonics skills. It was important that the adopted program had a variety of tasks and functions for both the teachers and the students.
The fun interactive games that LiteracyPlanet offers help engage students and provide a variety of interactive games to challenge the students. The Oak Tree School also utilize the homework tool, allowing for the setting of specific tasks for students to complete before moving up (or down) a level if necessary.
I especially like being able to input our own spelling lists, and the vocabulary lists that are available for all grade levels.
LiteracyPlanet helps us to track progress and lock certain tasks to make sure they are completed by students.
