Spellings Module

A fun and interactive way to get pupils practicing their spellings.

The Spellings Module is a great way for you to to encourage pupils to develop their word building skills, both inside and outside of the classroom, as well as tracking their progress.

How does the Spellings Module work?

The Spellings Module allows you to create fantastic spelling lists in minutes which you can share with your class straight away or at a later date. Either choose from our pre-made lists of dozens of curriculum-focussed tests or create your own. Custom lists can be created for your learners, customised to each child’s ability.

Using the innovative look-cover-write-check method to assess your students gives them the opportunity to learn both spelling and typing skills. Additionally, for accessibility purposes, audio tests are available for words in pre-made tests.

How does the Spelling Module benefit learners?

Spelling tests can be accessed from anywhere at any time, and on any device. One of the best features of the module is its tracking feature – you can set the same test multiple times and track a pupil’s progress over the course of a year, or compare them with their peers. The BrainTrain feature lets you see which words are most commonly misspelled and even lets you take these to create new, more challenging tests.

Blogging for Schools

Blogging is one of the most engaging and rewarding activities that children can do online. It is a fantastic way to develop reading and writing skills, promote peer learning and encourage open reflection on something newly learnt.

The Blog App is activated under your School Jotter account. Blog posts can be created and shared within the app or published directly to your school website. You might decide to set a blog topic for your class or ask students to keep a weekly log of their learning. Posts can be submitted for you to check and approve before publication. Pupils may be allowed to share or comment on blog posts once they have been published, enhancing the collaborative learning experience.

What are the key features of the Blog App?

The Blog App has a number of features to keep children safe online. Blog posts can be created within the app and shared only with a preselected group of people. As a teacher, you will retain control over the content created with a bad word filter notifying you if anyone is using the app inappropriately. By writing and sharing with others, pupils will learn to use the technology responsibly and gain an awareness of e-safety.
