Every child will have been given their user names and passwords by their teacher. If you need a reminder, just ask them.

Children in KS1 and 2 (Years 1 to 6) have accounts for DoodleMaths and Doodle English. These are fun and engaging apps which help children improve their ability and confidence in Maths and English. Everything they do can be accessed by their teacher, who can give feedback and set extra, personalised tasks, activities and challenges for each child.
Parents can also create an account which links to the accounts of their child(ren) in order to track their progress and achievement and stay up to date, via their free Doodle Connect app.
Download their free apps via the images above (Android, iOS, Kindle Fire, PC, Mac or Learn Pad) and log in to get started. There are separate Apps for Doodle Maths, Doodle Tables, Doodle English and Doodle Spell.
