Super Spellers is an exciting new spelling game, designed to support children aged 5-11 with building core spelling skills. Set in a dynamic gaming environment, Super Spellers allows students to strengthen their confidence in spelling, combining comic-style characters and fun score building functionality to heighten engagement and make learning fun.
Achieved through a range of exciting games and adhering to English Appendix 1, the Super Spellers platform employs research in the Gamification of learning experience to enhance knowledge retention.
Super Spellers focuses on building up habitual, subconscious references for phonemic and phonological awareness, as well as working constructively over time to develop students’ sub-vocalisation skills, all essential for cementing dependable spelling skills. Super Spellers supports the learning and retaining of all spelling rules set out by the Department of Education.
Overview of the concept and design.
Each student will have their own unique superhero name and avatar. By playing the game they will earn rewards such as coins and super powers to allow their avatar to become the ultimate super hero!
Power Badges will be rewarded once a spelling mission has been completed successfully. Badges will allow players to level up. By introducing this reward system, it will provide more intermediate goals for the game, to ensure that the player is not only focused on the immediate task but does not lack interest once completed.

Students learn at varied paces, so, in order to ensure they’re given maximum opportunity to build confidence in their spelling and be positively reinforced, whether at home or in school, we’ve developed the Super Spellers platform to be rewarding of engagement and trial efforts.
They’re able to practise in the training zone as many times as they need, to build up core understanding of their spelling lists set by their teachers, via the easy to use Teacher Zone. Winning Super Coins will encourage positive engagement within the educational platform. When they’re ready to move on, students move onto the Mission zone, where they’re able to put to the test the great skills they’ve built up during their practice runs. Wherewith successful completion, students are given a special reward, which is ranked on the shared leaderboard.

The workload of teachers is increasing all the time, that’s
why we’ve developed Super Spellers with ease of use and management in mind.
Once assigned a personal login, teachers are able to set spelling activities on a weekly or extended
period basis with a simple click from a selection of existing lists, or, for added personalisation, set specific spelling tests and targets for individual students.
At the end of the week, when students have completed their spelling lists, teachers can review and track results through an intuitive dashboard, putting student progress and data on where further development might be needed right at their fingertips.
Teachers can also access class leaderboards, ensuring the transferring of rewards from the platform into the classroom environment.
The leaderboard will show each student per school and can be filtered into year groups and classes. It will collate super coins, badges and hero status.
The leaderboard provides instant feedback, which will encourage longer game play, which, in this instance, will embed the spelling learnt.

Dyslexia is a very varied condition so the difficulties can be different from person to person.
Enabling the OpenDyslexic font on the site, is an option we will be providing, to aid children who have dyslexia, helping them to navigate the site easier.
What makes those fonts easier to read for people with dyslexia is the shape of the letters. OpenDyslexic weight the bottom of the letter shapes, which helps the letters from appearing to move around and helps the reader to tell the difference between mirror letters like ‘b’ and ‘d’.

Key Benefits of using Super Spellers
Learning to spell well is really useful if we want our children to become confident writers. If they are constantly stopping to think about how words are spelt while they write, it can interrupt their thinking about important parts of writing, like word choice and sentence construction. If they’re confident spellers, they’re also much more likely to make adventurous vocabulary choices. There’s a lot more to being a strong writer than spelling, but confidence in spelling can make a big difference.
Encourage children's engagement with spelling and writing.
Support reluctant and struggling spellers.
Embed learning through a multisensory approach.
Help to build confidence.
Monitor to identify areas of difficulty and support continued progress
