Pupils from a Bromley primary school have been celebrating their success after taking part in a nationwide maths Challenge.
Children at Bickley Primary School received a total of 32 awards following their participation in the Annual DoodleLearning Summer Challenge – a popular initiative designed to motivate pupils during the school holidays and prevent summer learning loss.
More than 18,000 children took part in the challenge, including pupils from 647 participating schools, by practising maths and English for just a few minutes each day, using DoodleLearning’s award-winning apps. Part of the Discovery Education family of solutions, the DoodleMaths and DoodleEnglish apps use the latest edtech advances to reward learning and boost children’s confidence.
The pupils from Bickley Primary school were rewarded with special certificates and badges that were presented by their teachers in school this week.
Teacher Louisa Dakin said:
“We are absolutely delighted that so many children took part in the Doodle Summer Challenge. This ‘little and often’ approach during the summer break does so much to support their learning and helps them to remember more over time. The children also really enjoy using Doodle, which encourages them even more!”
Howard Lewis, Discovery Education’s UK and International Managing Director said:
“We’re delighted that so many children entered this year’s DoodleLearning Summer Challenge and congratulate Bickley Primary School on their success! Our Doodle apps are a great way to extend learning beyond the classroom during the school holidays. We’re committed to creating content and resources that ignite students’ curiosity and make learning fun.”
Designed to be used for just 10 minutes a day, Discovery Education’s DoodleMaths and DoodleEnglish use the latest advances in learning and motivational psychology to raise attainment and boost confidence in maths and English. Giving children a personalised learning programme tailored to their needs, the apps are proven to boost confidence and ability. Filled with thousands of interactive exercises, they explore numeracy and literacy in a fun, approachable way, giving children core skills they can use in the classroom and beyond.
