Eesha (the pupil with the most correct answers in 5H):
‘Skoolbo is a remarkable, exceptional and really exciting way of learning. There are fabulous ways of earning points by playing maths and literacy games, so that you can buy aeroplanes as well as other great toys. Skoolbo is great because you can compete against other children around the world which means you want to play it everyday to earn the points. What is your favourite game on it?’
Since joining Skoolbo literacy has improved by 22% on average and Numeracy by 16% across the school!
“I think it is fantastic – I tried it out on my 8 year old son at home first and because he loved it so much I just knew that our children at Stag Lane HAD to have it! It was so eye catching and fast paced. My staff particularly like the fact that it assesses the children as they go along so they don’t have to regularly set new work. The children are very enthused and it has taken off in every year group from Year 3 to Year 6. The sticker packs have been well received and it is lovely to see children walking around the school wearing them.”
Jo Kercher – Maths Subject leader Stag Lane Junior school

‘Skoolbo is just so much fun. I love to play it and it helps me to learn.’ Khilan 5H
‘I love playing the maths games best as I get lots of points when I beat the other children. It really does help me to learn, without making it look like normal work because it’s a game really.’ Jeevan 5H
