“Happily, from recent NAPLAN results, we’ve seen a significant improvement in students’ literacy skills. In particular, students’ results in reading, spelling and grammar have strongly improved from 2015 to 2017. WordFlyers has made a difference in our school.”

“My class is really loving WordFlyers, so much so that they’re disappointed when I ask them to finish their lesson so we can move on to something else! I love that it caters to students’ ability levels and that they can learn at their own paces.”
