Sumdog is amazing!
All the pupils love playing the interactive games and more so when they can compete against each other! The contests give it another level of learning. Pupils want to do well. They want to get questions correct, to up the class average.
How Sumdog works
Games motivate pupils
As children play, Sumdog checks their progress against the curriculum.
Traffic lights show completed skills while the hard skills report shows where they struggle.
Set focused activities
Use Sumdog to identify your target pupils.
Set challenges and focus skills for individuals or groups – at school or at home.
Fun turns to progress
Sumdog’s engaging games tailor questions to each pupil’s needs – freeing you to focus on teaching.
