The site is designed mainly for schools to manage reading and writing activities for the children at their school.
Most of the site's facilities (for sending and receiving (pretend) email, and for any class activities) are not available until your child is joined to a class by a teacher at their school.
When your child is signed up by their teacher:
- they cannot be contacted through the site unless the teacher approves this.
- they do not have a real email address
- they can only communicate with others at their school
- they can only communicate outside their school with a class that their teacher has formally linked up with.
- their teacher can switch off the child's access to the site (for example outside school hours)
What can they do?
- learn the basics of email using this secure internal system
- write stories and share them with their classmates
- collaborate with others in producing stories - of any length or style
- respond to tasks set by their teachers
- read stories written by teachers
- become the star of the stories
If you have any concerns or wish to suggest the site to your child's school, please see their teacher, or contact us here

Check out our new feature - set a WALT, attach a target, and display the WALT to students. You mark each day against the WALT, children can comment back to you and indicate their progress on the WALT and the target. Go to your class page.

Students can now submit a portfolio of work for a class activity set by their teacher. Stories, emails, comments, files, and media can be attached to the portfolio and sent to the teacher for marking.

We have created an easy way for teachers to write instructions to their class - and attach documents, pics etc. to show the children. Once created, teachers can choose which classes see them.

Setting and displaying targets for your students is now much easier. Just select students, select targets, and apply. All on one page. Students can self-evaluate against each target, and teachers can feed back.
