We are so proud of everyone who has taken part in this competition – each participant received a special Myths and Legends Sumdog outfit for their avatar, and as the winners, Elterwater have won a free 30 pupil subscription for the school!


Children need to visit Sumdog on a regular basis as it helps to develop and revise their basic Maths and Literacy Skills - it really does help to sharpen our skills and most of all it is fun. Play games against class mates, other schools and even the world! It is available to all pupils all summer too!
