Raphael's thoughts on Skoolbo:
Skoolbo is a great application that helps children to improve their learning whilst having fun. I use Skoolbo in my classroom on a daily basis as part of my reading and maths tumble. I find it very helpful, as children are always motivated to have a go and without noticing they are improving their learning.
I had students who were not very confident with their basic facts knowledge, times table or take aways and since we've started using Skoolbo they have made huge progress with their maths knowledge. I also had students who spelling weren't their best and they now have made great progress in their spelling.
I really like Skoolbo and I would definitely continue to use in my classroom and also as part of my homework programme. I have had many positive feedback from parents on how they children are so much more engaged with their learning since we've started to use it as part of our homework system. Thanks Skoolbo, I will for sure continue to use you next year in my classroom.
