  • New Learn the Words Activities Prompt 

    We have now added an on-page prompt to encourage students to use the Learn the Words activities while working on their Course Pathways. Teachers can monitor whether these activities are being used on each student’s Course Test results overview page.
  • New Unit Summary Section

    Students are now provided with a summary of things they have learnt while completing a course unit. They can now also give feedback on how confident they feel at the end of each unit. Teachers can view each student’s confidence ratings on their Course Test results overview page.

"Thank goodness for Spellzone during this remote learning phase. The site is easy for students to navigate independently and they're really enjoying the activities and spelling games. You get an awful lot for your money with Spellzone. Really reassuring is the very prompt response with helpdesk queries. I've very rarely needed the helpdesk, but when I have, the issue has been addressed and sorted within a very short time."
