"There is more pupil enjoyment. The texts are more easily accessible with a wider range of texts being read. This results in higher quality writing."

“Very well received and all enthusiastic participants. This was an inclusive way to involve all the children and they could understand the text at their own level. Use of vocabulary and writing at a much higher level."
