    I am looking to purchase a subscription to a independent learning website for English. I teach ks2 and ks3 and am looking for something which teaches and tests the pupils automatically sending me the results. I need it to do games/tests on reading, spelling, grammar and writing. Any suggestions? I have had a look at spellodrome and boardworks?

  3. I think that What2Learn will fit your needs. It has lots of English and literacy activities and interactive learning games. Students enjoy a range of in-built rewards and teachers can sit back and enjoy automated marking. Best of all, despite having thousands of ready-made activities, if you cannot find exactly what you are looking or if you want something really specific to what you are doing in lessons you can add your own questions to the interactive activities.
    It is managed by Pearson Publishing and is really good value for money. See http://www.what2learn.com/home/premium-what2learn/
    They have recently updated their literacy content to take advantage of the interest students will have in the upcoming events at London 2012 - http://www.what2learn.com/literacy/

    Self-marking literacy is useful for spelling, and somewhat less so for literacy. It is very useful, though, for your workload! Have a look at: http://sljmitchell.web.officelive.com/default.aspx . It has excellent materials for teaching literacy, particularly in the classroom. And it's free! Not quite what you're after, but sophisticated enough nevertheless.
