The Learnathon is well and truly underway! Children from around the world are taking on the challenge of answering 1,000 literacy, maths and language questions, which is resulting in fantastic improvement in essential foundational skills. These superstars of learning are being encouraged by family and friends who are pledging their support in their thousands! 100% of funds raised goes directly to the participant’s teacher in the form of credit to spend in the new educational resource shop.
We thought it was now time to give you a little taster of some of the fabulous classroom resources that will shortly be available for teachers to spend their Learnathon credit on. We are working with a number of top educational companies to bring you resources that aim to both enrich the learning experience of students and save valuable planning time.

Did you know that 94% of children master a new skill after only 20 minutes on Skoolbo? During the Learnathon your child will be challenged to answer 1,000 maths, literacy and language questions, providing the opportunity for securing many of those essential foundational skills. And now you can provide some vital additional motivation by pledging your support.
Every penny you pledge will be converted to credit for your child’s teacher to spend on amazing resources in our new educational resource shop. This means that not only will your child receive recognition from you for their efforts and achievements, you will also be making a direct positive contribution to the learning resources available to them.
There’s a little extra motivation for players too! The Skoolbo team have created some exciting digital rewards that students can earn during the Learnathon. For example, answering 1,000 questions will be rewarded with a fabulous hypersonic jet!
How do I pledge my support?
Your child has their own dedicated fundraising page which shows how many questions they have answered so far and the amount they have raised through their efforts. All donations are handled safely via Skoolbo, so it couldn’t be simpler!
If you have been sent a letter by your child’s school then it contains the link to your child’s fundraising page. The letter is also available to you on the homepage of your parent dashboard.
Don’t have a parent account?
Then sign up for one today! It’s completely free and only takes a moment to set up. You’ll just need your child’s username and password.
Spread the word! Why not invite family and friends to pledge their support too! Remember 100% of funds raised will go to your child’s teacher.
