COVID – 19 UPDATE SumDog Competition

Dear Parent/Carer

While children are at home, we want them to be able to keep learning – in an enjoyable way. To help with this, we have decided to use Sumdog. Its game-based learning encourages children to practise maths, spelling and grammar.  SumDog have just announced that they will be running a Maths competition across all schools in Newcastle. The contest starts on Friday 24th April and it will be great if all students at Walbottle could take part. Students only need to play for an hour a week to achieve a competitive score. We will also be running an in school competition linked to VMG groups, more details to follow on our #PROUD Thursday Twitter feed.

As your child uses Sumdog, the questions are personalised to their level, helping them progress. They’re mixed with revision questions, to practise what we’ve already covered.

Your child’s log in details have been sent to their school email accounts.

Here’s how to get your child started on Sumdog:
– Download the app – you can use Android tablets or phones, iPads or iPhones, or Amazon Kindles.
– Use a computer – Sumdog works on all modern browsers. Just go to and log in.
– You can also get a free Sumdog parent login, and keep in touch with your child’s efforts on Sumdog.

Together, we can help children keep learning!
