Between the 1st of July and the 31st August, we invite learners to join one or both of our Summer Challenges — the DoodleMaths Challenge and the DoodleEnglish Challenge!
At a time when rebuilding confidence is more important than ever, the Summer Challenge helps children to maintain their learning over the holidays by encouraging daily Doodling.
Most excitingly, all those who take part can earn a FREE pin badge and certificate for their hard work!
The challenges will run from Thursday 1st of July to Tuesday 31st of August. The last day to start the Challenges will be on the 18th August.
Children need to earn 750 stars (or 600 stars if they were born on or after 01/09/13) and achieve a 14-day streak during the Summer Challenge period.
Children with school subscriptions or home subscriptions in DoodleMaths and/ or DoodleEnglish can take part.
As parents all you need to do (and you must do this when your child stars the challenge) is register* your child/children in the challenge through the Parent Dashboard. On the homepage of the Dashboard, you will see a Summer Challenge tile with your child/children's names. You'll be prompted to register and join in with the challenge with a 'register in Challenge' link. By clicking on this, your child will have been registered in the Challenge where they'll receive a confirmation email and two progress progress bars will appear (one for star count and another for streak count). This will help you and your child keep a running tally of streak and stars goals throughout the challenge.
*If your child has a school account, please ensure you have linked your parent email to the account first! For instructions on how to do this please see this article.
Once your child has completed the Challenge by reaching their target, you can claim your child's reward by logging in to the Parent Dashboard and pressing 'Submit entry' next to your child's name. If your child has a home subscription, their reward will be sent to their home address. If your child has a school subscription, their reward will be sent directly to school.
For the first time ever, children will also receive an in app badge when they complete the challenge. This can be viewed in their app by tapping on the arrow in the top left hand corner of their screen, selecting Badges and toggling to Challenges. Children will see a progress bar to see how far they are from completing the challenge requirements. Once the challenge has been completed the badge will appear in full colour.
Although there is no requirement for this, we love to see what you've been getting up to! Let us know how you're getting on by using the hashtag #DoodleMathsChallenge or #DoodleEnglishChallenge on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram!
