As a school we have used a learning programme called Nessy for a number of years, with some of our students. It is an online programme designed to help pupils learn to read, write, spell and type. We normally only use it with children who need a bit of extra support, but it can be of great help to all children, regardless of their ability.
Mrs Dobbie is our 'Nessy Queen' and will set up an account for any child who would like one. If your child normally works with Mrs Dobbie they will already have one and should now what they are doing. If they don't I have attached a getting started guide.
If you would like a login for this please e-mail Mrs Dobbie with your child/rens name, and date of birth. This is needed to set up the account and make sure the work is at the appropriate level. Mrs Dobbie will then e-mail you back with the details you will need. In order to comply with GDPR we will assume that if you ask for us to set up the account you are happy with us supplying Nessy with your child's name and DOB. If you would like more information about their privacy policy it is available at
Mrs Dobbie can be contacted via e-mail on Once she has set your child up the instructions below should work.

They also have a Youtube channel with some good quality resources.
