Day 5 has seen Fife strengthen their lead on the Local Authority leaderboard and it is a Fife school and class currently sitting at the top of both the school and class tables.
Student Katie Parrish from class 7 in East Renfrewshire’s Busby Primary School has bucked the trend however and has built up an impressive lead on the student leaderboard.
With almost 175,000 answers it’s looking as though Fife are going to be very difficult to overtake although, of course, anything is possible and there are still two days left.
The amazing students of St Paul’s Roman Catholic Primary School in Glenrothes are committed Skoolbo learners and they have answered almost half a million questions on the platform! Their top performing class is Primary 4 with over 120,000 answers, followed by Primary 5 with over 86,000 answers. We were absolutely delighted when they got in touch to tell us exactly what they enjoy about playing –
“Skoolbo is really fun.” – Cole (Primary 4)
“Skoolbo helps you with your school work.” Rosie (Primary 4)
“I really like playing skoolbo on my iPad.” Mohammed (Primary 5)
“I like the way it gives me harder questions to help me get better at maths, reading and spelling.” Garry (Primary 5)
“Skoolbo is an interactive and fun way to learn.” Finlay (Primary 7)
The teachers of St Paul’s have told us that they integrate Skoolbo into their curriculum planning and regularly set it as homework. Here they give us a wonderful insight into why they feel Skoolbo is a winner with both teachers and students alike.
“It’s great to see the children grow in confidence as they play the games. The whole class are motivated by it and want to see where they are placed individually, as a class and as a school on the leaderboard.” Mrs Ripley (Class Teacher)
“As a teacher I have loved how easy it is to set up and manage pupil progress through the dashboard. I often set skoolbo as a homework task. The pupils love it when I put the leaderboard up on display, so they can see who the leader is.” Miss Tindal (Class Teacher)
“Skoolbo is a great way for the children to learn. They are really motivated to use it in order to move up the leaderboard and to get the class certificates. The questions are set at the right level to give the children a challenge while also ensuring they achieve and grow in confidence.” Mr FIsher (Class Teacher)
