Why is celebrating the end of term important?

Each year, the Summer term rolls around quicker than expected and with the pressure of preparing for SATs and the MTC - it can be an incredibly stressful time for both pupils and teachers. In fact, recent research has discovered that compared to a decade ago, school life is more intense and children are under more pressure to achieve. With this in mind, as the school year comes to an end it becomes all the more important to celebrate all the hard work and achievements of pupils throughout the year.


Why enter a Sumdog maths contest?

Participating in one of Sumdog’s online maths contests is a great way for children to celebrate the end of term that is both fun and educational! The perfect opportunity for pupils to practise their maths skills, boost their confidence and have fun! Our contests are:

  • Engaging: Our interactive games make learning fun for children as they answer maths questions while playing one of our exciting games!
  • Motivating: Each day, children are able to view their individual and class scores on Sumdog’s daily contest leaderboard. This is great for building excitement and morale among pupils to increase their class score and take the Sumdog contest crown.
  • Fair and adaptive: As pupils compete against other classes and schools in their region, each child answers maths questions at their own level ensuring an even playing field for all pupils.
