By lunchtime yesterday, children from across the globe had collectively answered over one million questions! We thought that was pretty amazing until we took a look this morning…over three and a half million questions!
This is an awesome achievement and everyone taking part has every reason to feel enormously proud. Of course it is made all the more special as every answer given represents another step a student has made towards mastering a new maths, literacy or language skill!
Whilst we are delighted with our collective performance, it is the accomplishment of individual territories that will determine the overall winner and our little island is ready for the challenge!
Scotland’s Kirknewton Primary School have rolled up their sleeves and are getting down to some serious maths and literacy learning with the added motivation of playing for Team GB!
We’re really glad to have them on board and making a valuable contribution to Team GB’s score.
We asked Principal Teacher and Skoolbo advocate, Ms Anderson to give us the low-down on why students from Kirknewton are enjoying their learning so much. They are so taken with their Skoolbo avatars, they wanted them shown here!
“Fun For Friends and Family!” Heather
“I think Skoolbo is a great website because it lets you compete around the world!” Luke
“I think skoolbo is great for children because it encourages children to enhance their learning in a fun way. You also get certificates for every 1000 answers you get right. You can add friends but you need to be sitting next to them to do it because you need to put in the other persons code but it only comes up on the other persons screen.” Cameron
“It helps you with all your subjects. This is one good game for adults and one great game for kids! Skoolbo is really good for learning and it is fun. It also helps if you are a little bit competitive because there is a leaderboard for your class, school, region, every school, every class and the whole world! We got to the top of the leaderboard, see if you can climb to the top!” Mia
