Doodlemaths and DoodleEnglish

All children in Years 1 to Years 6 now have an account on this amazing maths app.  As of Thursday 25th April these accounts now can also be used to use Doodle English, Doodle Spell and Doodle Tables.  All are available from your preferred app store.  

The PDF document below provides additional help in setting up and starting to use the apps. 

Hello again Year 3,


I hope you are all keeping safe and well and enjoying this extra time you are having with your family.

I know that you will be behaving very well for your mums and dads, especially when they say it’s time to do some home learning and that you are trying your best for them, just as you would if we were at school. It will be hard work for them at the moment trying to keep you safe, perhaps going to work and trying to help you learn too. So make sure you give them a big smile when they tell you that it’s time to do your school work.

Every week, I will add new learning tasks to the website, I will be adding the following every week

5 maths activities (one for each day Mon – Fri).

1 arithmetic test from your booklet each week.

5 English activities (as above) these will include grammar and writing.

5 reading activities (as above) to use like guided reading.

Spelling activities from your booklet should be carried out every day, ask someone to test you each week on the set of words you have been working on.

Some science activities

Some topic activities

Some RE activities.


Mrs McDonagh will send me some music and computing activities for you too.


Don’t forget your God Made Me booklet to work through too.


I have tried to make the maths activities more like a game for you this week, so enjoy.

It would be great if you could complete as many of these activities as you can. Your parents will guide you and help you decide which ones to do if you can’t complete them all.

Don’t worry if you don’t get through all the activities – there are a lot of them – just try your best.  It would be better to do all of one task really well than some of lots of tasks.


All of this shows you how very hard you work each week when we are in school, and I’m very proud of all the progress each of you have made so far this year, so we must not let that slip.


If you have any feedback or photographs, I would love your parents to send them to me via my email at

as I miss seeing you all and having fun together. I will try to reply as soon as I can.

Until next week, just try your best and remember not to get upset if you struggle with anything -  as I always say we can sort it out together.

Take Care

Mrs Rushton
