Lexia Powerup Lexia Core5 App logo

A literacy program, for selected students
www.lexiapowerup.com        www.lexiacore5.com

Children identified as needing additional support for their reading and literacy, will be enrolled in to one of the Lexia programmes that we offer, either Core5 or PowerUp. They will be timetabled to attend a Lexia class for 20 minutes, three times a week.

  • Lexia automatically places each student, and provides reinforcement activities when they need additional time on tasks.
  • Lexia focuses on critical reading skills that have been identified by national reading experts.
  • Various levels of activities provide extensive practise in everything from basic phonological awareness to advanced word-attack strategies and vocabulary development based on Greek and Latin word roots.
  • Students systematically progress through the software and gain a sense of achievement, confidence and independence.

As this is an internet based application, students are able to continue their Lexia at home, and we strongly recommend this:

The website for Powerup is at www.lexiapowerup.com,
The website for Core5 is at www.lexiacore5.com,
on iPad you will have to use the relevant Apps - PowerUp  Core5
The 'Teachers email' required to set up your device is   ictsupport@priestlands.hants.sch.uk   and you will need your Lexia username and password.
