Before each New this Week, Extra and Power Up, Doodle will explain new topics to your child to build their understanding of new areas of learning.

Interactive elements

Every topic explanation not only contains a short explanation but also interactive elements. Children will be encouraged to complete these as they're guided through the new topic to support and reinforce their understanding.

They'll need to complete each element before they can move on to the next part of the explanation or go on to their exercise.

The interactive parts of the explanation have been designed so that a child should be able to answer them correctly even if the topic is new to them. They won't lose any stars if they answer incorrectly on their first attempt.

Your child will be able to earn up to three stars for completing the interactive elements in an explanation.

Accessing concept explanations through the Help menu

If a child is struggling with answering a particular question, they can view concept explanation through the Help menu.

If a child accesses it this way, they won't have to answer the interactive elements, but they can if they'd like to. If they do answer the interactive elements this way, they won't receive any stars.
