When you are logged into the Doodle apps, pressing on Menu in the top left hand corner of the Learning Zone will open the main menu.

You will be able to access any of the areas that are 'unlocked'. If you view a padlock next to the area symbol, you will not be able to access that area until enough DoodleStars have been earned or a daily activity has been completed.


The Learn area symbol will lead to the Learning Zone in the App - the screen from where all the learning activities can be accessed. You can read more about the Learning Zone here.


The Badges area will open the gallery of reward badges that have been earned by the child. You can read more about our badges here.


The Friends area is where children can access the motivational features Newsfeed, Leaderboard and Secret Files. Find out more about the Friends section here.


Once children have completed their daily Doodling and are working within their green zone, they can stay motivated with our fun educational games which are designed to develop a variety of key skills. Find out more about games here.


Children have plenty of opportunities to spend their hard earned DoodleStars! Tapping on Stars will then give them the opportunity to access My Robot/Pet/Coach (as long as they are in their green zone) and also My Rewards.

My Robot/Pet/Coach - With each DoodleStar earned, children can accessorise their avatar, travel the world, or mix potions to transform their Wizard Lizard! Each app contains a different motivational feature creating exciting opportunities for engagement.

My Rewards - Designed to celebrate each child's hard work and determination, Rewards will help to inspire them in their learning, encouraging them to use Doodle for a few minutes each day. Find out more here!

You can now create rewards to celebrate your child or pupils’ achievements in Doodle. These can be anything of your choosing, from a trip to the cinema to a walk in the park


Within Settings you can ensure that the parent and child details are all up to date, check that the sound settings are on/off, choose a coloured overlay, select the correct country curriculum, and start a new Baseline Assessment.
