All the children who use Lexia love it! They are all motivated to come into school and take part in Lexia.

Once a child has completed a level, I send the skills builders home for the children to complete with their parents and I find this is a great way of getting parents involved and enthusiastic to encourage their children to use Lexia more at home.
We noticed at the end of May when we analysed the standardised scores of the children in literacy that all children who had been doing Lexia since Christmas had made improvements in their scores from the previous year. I set termly targets for each child as to what level I want them to aim towards completing by the end of term and most children are eager to reach these targets.
