Summer Sumdog Success (June 2017)

North Lakes have stormed to Sumdog Success once again! 28 of our mathematicians have again finished in the top 50 in the Cumbria Summer Contest.


Bassenthwaite Maths Group were the outright winners in Cumbria with 359 points; Rydal Water Maths Group were 3rd (287pts), Elterwater Maths group took 7th  (189pts), Windermere Maths Group 10th  (128pts) and Buttermere Maths Group 11th (107pts) with Ullswater Maths Group 12th (86pts) in Cumbria! It is a wonderful achievement to have so many of our classes in the Cumbrian Top 12!


Daily winners in the contest included Bassenthwaite, Elterwater and Rydal. The congratulations don’t stop there, as North Lakes also had 5 of the top 10 students in Cumbria! Each competitor could answer a maximum of 1000 questions each. Charlotte S (Y5) was 1st in Cumbria, with a tremendous 913 correct, Logan H (Y5) 2nd with 908 correct, Raisa-Bianca (Y5) 6th (880), Sophie B 8th (835) and Ryan F-K 9th with 834 questions correct. A fantastic effort by Y5!




Research shows that over the summer break, children can lose over two months' mathematical ability. Sumdog uses engaging games to encourage students, and automatically adapts to your child’s needs. To help beat this Summer Slide, we’d like you to encourage your child to play a little Sumdog each week. Sumdog will give on-screen rewards in each week your child answers 100 questions.


Sumdog is available for Maths, Spelling and Grammar.  Ask your child to show you today - visit your child's class page where they can log in with their school Username and Password. Remember the School code is: north_5 Have fun!
