Support your pupils as they develop a love of reading and improve their literacy skills

Give Giglets a try.

Learning litracy software for schools

Giglets is an online reading resource accessed by over 25,000 pupils every week.

Giglets at its heart, is a library but with one key difference: pupils are engaged in the story before they’ve even started to decode the text.

  • Reading often starts with an illustration or an animation
  • Sound effects or music set the scene
  • Audio storytelling supports the pupil in understanding the text

Using the comprehensive collection of books and resources in the Giglets library, we’ll show you how to secure the very best practice in reading.

  • Interactive comprehension questions help pupils demonstrate what they understand, just as they do in national reading tests
  • Pupils explore creative activities that relate to the story
  • Question sets help develop higher order thinking

"We have examples of dyslexic pupils engaging effectively with Giglets, in the knowledge that they can continue reading texts at home if they haven’t finished at school and this has undoubtedly developed their self-confidence. Boys in particular have been excited by the visual aspect – Year 6 calling me in to show what they were reading, for example."
Ann Bellis
Headteacher at Ysgol Gymraeg Bro Helyg in Blaenau Gwent, Wales (Oct, 2016)
"It was one of the first insets for quite a while where all staff were thoroughly enthused and since then, pupils are loving the stimulating books, especially the music intros and animation. Giglets is so versatile – worth every penny!"
Sophie Notely

"Staff love the beautiful and detailed stories that Giglets has to offer, and children enjoy reading the stories and find the questions rewarding. Overall, staff at AWIS are pleased with Giglets and are making concerted efforts to continue to further integrate it into our timetable."
