ICT in English
As part Westwood Primary School’s English curriculum, pupils are encouraged to log into Moo-O at the beginning of the year to hone their reading and speaking skills. Moo-O has proved to be a useful tool for pupils as they get a chance to immerse themselves as the characters in the story they are reading, thus motivating them to read fluently and expressively.
Moo-O also allows parents to be a good role model to their child during the process of reading aloud. This is especially so because when parents make an effort to read fluently and expressively, they become good role models for their children to follow. Research has shown that active parental involvement in their children's education will have a positive impact on their learning, and Moo-O provides parents with such an opportunity.
