31/07/2017

Did you know that all grade 7, 8 and 9 students as well as all the students that attend the Intensive English Centre have free online access to LiteracyPlanet? With regular practice, LiteracyPlanet can support your child to improve their reading, writing, spelling and grammar.

The students will have some opportunities to access LiteracyPlanet at school, but if your child also has access to the internet at home they will be able to access their account by simply logging on to www.literacyplanetstudentlogin and entering their student user name and password. Most students will have their password by now, but feel free to contact their English Teacher or myself if they need their login details.

Is there enough content to challenge my child?

Different levels within each literacy skill ensure that students are consistently challenged and can map their progress. Positive reinforcement is used throughout the program to actively encourage students to achieve and 'have another go'. The 'Arcade' also motivates students by appealing to their natural competitive spirit.

Literacy Planet is an incentive based program where students earn credit for every exercise completed. Credit points can be used to purchase clothing and accessories for their avatar or used to play cool digital games in the 'Arcade'.

Is LiteracyPlanet safe to use?

YES. LiteracyPlanet provides a safe and controlled learning environment where interaction between students is controlled. Students only interact with others using predetermined messages that are designed to foster a spirit of support, encouragement and shared learning. No private details are accessible.

Where possible please encourage your child to access the site on a regular basis even if it’s only for 10-15 minutes at a time, research proves that little and often usually works best!​
