Whether you’re looking to help your child catch up, stay on track or progress to the next level, Doodle is here to help!

Covering the core areas of maths and English, our four apps will create your child a unique work programme precisely tailored to their needs, helping to boost their confidence and ability.

The Doodle apps mimic the actions of a good tutor. Proxima™, our clever algorithm, works with your child to identify their strengths and weaknesses. Doodle then works its magic to build them a personalised learning programme tailored to their needs. It creates an immersive, interactive learning experience for young children, who are simply guided through the programme to the areas they need to work on. Doodle automatically targets tricky topics, fills learning gaps and consolidates knowledge.

5 times a week, children will need to do their 5/6/7/8/9/10 a Day (their main work programme) and a New This Week every 3-10 sessions, before they can access engaging games and their selected avatar.

Doodle is designed to revise previously learnt topics, fill in any gaps of weakness and build in new learning as and when the child is ready. How your child progresses through the programme and it's content will be unique to them. You may notice that your child is covering content from below their actual year group - this is perfectly normal and expected! Doodle wants to ensure there are no gaps in previous understanding before moving them on.

You can track progress and help motivate every step of the way through the Parent Dashboard – our online analytics and tracking hub.

Fully curriculum-aligned for KS1, KS2 and KS3 students, the programme is the perfect homework partner for catching-up or getting ahead in maths and English.

  • DoodleMaths is suitable for children aged 4-14 and covers KS1, KS2 and KS3

  • DoodleEnglish is suitable for children aged 5-11 and covers KS1 and KS2

Using Doodle for 10 minutes a day is proven to double a child’s rate of progression!
