Between the 1st July and the 31st August, we invite learners to join one or both of our Summer Challenges -- the DoodleMaths Challenge and the DoodleEnglish Challenge!

Designed to encourage a few minutes of daily Doodling, the Summer Challenge promotes healthy learning habits and builds each child’s confidence, helping to spark their love of learning.

Most excitingly, all those who complete the challenge will earn a FREE in-app badge, a real-life pin badge and an exclusive downloadable certificate to celebrate their hard work!

The challenges will run from Monday 1st July to Saturday 31st August. The last day to start the challenges will be on Sunday 18th August (as one requirement is Doodling for 14 days).

Children need to earn 750 stars (or 600 stars if they were born on or after 01/09/16) and use DoodleMaths and /or DoodleEnglish for 14 days* between the 1st of July-31st of August. You can keep track of their progress by downloading our free tracker sheet.

*These 14 days don’t need to be in a row. A day of use is defined as completing at least one exercise between 0:01 and 23:59.

Children with school subscriptions or home subscriptions in DoodleMaths and/ or DoodleEnglish can take part. To take part, parents just need to register their child in the challenge and then, once completed, claim their child's reward.

Register for the Challenge - you'll be able to register from 1st July!

As parents you need to (and you must do this when your child starts the challenge) register your child/children in the challenge through the Parent Dashboard. To do this:

  1. On the homepage of the Dashboard, you will see a Summer Challenge tile with your child/children's names. You need to click on the Register link next to your child's name. By clicking on this, your child will have been registered in the Challenge. You'll receive a confirmation email and two progress bars will appear (one for star count and another for streak count). Hover over this bar to see a running tally of streak and stars goals throughout the Challenge.

  2. Be sure to register for BOTH challenges if your child would like to take part in both the DoodleMaths and DoodleEnglish Summer Challenge.

  3. If you have more than one child linked to your account, be sure to register ALL children who would like to take part.

*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.

Claim your child's reward

Once your child has completed the Challenge by achieving their streak and target stars, you can claim your child's reward. To do this:

  1. Login to the Parent Dashboard and press Claim 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.

  2. Be sure to do this for BOTH Challenges and for ALL children!

The last chance to claim their rewards is midnight on the 31st of August. Their pin badge will be sent to your home if you have a home account, or their school if they have a school account.

Children will also receive an in app badge as soon as 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. During the Challenge, 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!

For more information, please see our Summer Challenge webpage, our Summer Challenge FAQs, or reach out to our customer success team who are available to contact via the green chat bubble in the bottom right hand corner of our website or the Parent Dashboard.

Happy Doodling!
