Can your students master the Mega Mountain these holidays?

MMC BLOG

What a better time than the winter holidays to stop the brain freeze and continue your students learning.  While it is cold and wet outside children can be playing on Skoolbo, expanding their maths and literacy skills.

It only takes 30 seconds of your time to set up a mega mountain challenge and is completely free.

The start of the school holidays is the perfect time to set your students a ClassBo Class challenge. A couple of clicks in your teacher dashboard and you’re ready to go! Challenge your class to collectively answer 5K, 25K or 100K questions correctly – the choice is yours! It’s a fantastic way to keep your students motivated and learning during the Winter holidays!

Every child will be able to play against their friends and Skoolbo’s sophisticated algorithms mean that even though the children compete against their peers, they are still presented with their own personal curriculum, adapted precisely for them.

Set your class a ClassBo today and jumpstart winter learning!
