Literacy. 

We understand the challenges of teaching in today's classrooms, balancing/delivering with meeting curriculum outcomes, whilst integrating IT and engaging your students. We can help you overcome those challenges.

 

We can help you overcome those challenges with the use of a series of literacy-based adventure games. Sleuth IT games enable teachers to deliver engaging sessions to their class, each game comes with a terms worth of varied and interesting lessons and activities for your students. 

 

A key element of working with a Sleuth IT game is the use of creative iPad workflows and IT skills that are transferable to any lesson or curriculum area. iPad is perfect for managing your classroom workflows to ensure efficient use of time.

 

Encouraging Literacy work.

Sleuth IT adventure games encourage literacy in the classroom with an immersive experience which places your students at the heart of a mystery that needs to be solved. 

 

Reading for understanding is key to solving the mystery, students have to extract and assess information, analyse and make deductions from materials they uncover within the game. Collaboration, communication and problem solving as part of a team help to crack the case. Whilst Sleuth IT is an iPad based game, it encourages your students to use pen and paper to problem solve throughout the game.

 

 

Bridging the Gender Gap. 

Statistics from 2014 show that 1 in 5 children in England cannot read well by age 11.

Lacking vital literacy skills by this age will hold a person back at every stage of their education, and have a negative impact on their achievements for the rest of their life.

Research consistently shows that boys’ reading lags behind that of girls. The Boys’ Reading Commission Report of 2012 reveals that 76% of UK schools are concerned about boys’ underachievement in reading, and the reading gender gap continues to widen.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Differentiated Resources.

Because children learn at different rates and have different levels of ability, all Key Stage 2 games (the Primary Collection) are supplied with two versions of the same adventure - one at a level suitable for challenged readers, children who require more support, or for whom English is an additional language. In the Supported Learning version, the story, evidence and outcome are the same, but the language is simpler and more accessible. Both games can be played alongside each other, so the whole class can work and learn together, at whichever level they need.
