Lexia Core 5
Lexia is an individually tailored interactive phonics software program that is available in school to every child. Our children take part in Lexia Core 5 sessions as a whole class, in small groups or they work individually. When working individually, students are automatically placed at the correct level and work independently to develop their foundational reading skills. The program provides explicit, systematic, adaptive learning on foundational reading skills, scaffolding students as they struggle and advancing them to higher levels as they demonstrate proficiency.
If you have internet access via a computer or tablet, your child can continue their learning at home. Children who can commit to a daily 10 – 15 minutes on the program generally make good progress.

Sumdog is a way for children to practice math skills while playing fun, math-related games against friends, classmates, or students from around the world. Games are individualized for each child’s ability level, so users can play against opponents who have the same skills. Sumdog’s educational games are used in thousands of schools worldwide. As children play the educational games, they answer questions – each one personalised to their own needs. It gets to know each child, guiding their learning, while reporting back to parents on their progress through the curriculum.
