Term 3 has been a busy time for all of us.  We have been delighted with the number of new schools taking us up on our free logins until Christmas.  We’ve given out over 50,000 student logins in total.   It’s been great to see our mission come alive - Changing lives through improving literacy.

We also have some exciting improvements to share with you over the coming months.

New Activity - Fireworks

We’re excited to let you know about our new activity, Fireworks, which is coming next week.  This activity develops tracking skills and letter recognition.
For now, it'll only be available in the Games section.  Next year, it'll be added to the Course on units where appropriate.
This activity is more graphically intensive than our other activities.  As a result, we are increasing the minimum requirements.

As of 1st Jan 2022, we will no longer be supporting iOS 9.3.5*
* This covers iPads that were made before 2013 (gen 2&3 iPads and gen 1 iPad minis). These devices account for 0.8% of our total usage.

The new minimum iOS version is 10.3.4.  You can find the full list of supported devices at:

Coming up - "Focus Mode"

We’ve been working on improving the student and teacher interfaces and are looking forward to launching these changes later this year.  These are the changes to expect:

•    More comprehensive reporting on individual student and class progress.

•    A weekly activity goal depending on whether the student is on maintenance or catch-up.

•    Weekly progress report emailed to teachers to inform them which students are not meeting their goals or struggling with content.

•    Ability to assign Games and Supporting Activities
As always, we really value your feedback, so please let us know your thoughts when these developments come through!

Have a great holiday!
