Doodle expectations for each year group

Every child in school is expected to use each of the Doodle apps listed for their year group at least 3 times each week. 


  • Squirrels - DoodleMaths
  • Year 1 - DoodleMaths & DoodleSpell
  • Year 2 - DoodleMaths & DoodleSpell plus DoodleTables from Spring Term onwards (once children begin their Multiplication and Division topic).

  • Years 3-6 - DoodleMaths, DoodleTables (some exceptions) & DoodleSpell


DoodleEnglish is available to all children, though there is no set expectation of how it should be used.  It may occasionally be used in class to support a particular area of work.    


The key to being a successful Doodler is to apply a 'little and often' approach. 5-10 minutes on each app is sufficient.  Though we set 3 times a week as a minimum, the children who Doodle every day definitely make the best progress.

Every child will be able to access Doodle once a week within class time and will also have the opportunity to attend Doodle club at lunchtimes.  If your child is unable to access the internet at home, please make their class teacher aware so we make provision for them to complete their 3 sessions per week in school.

Children who Doodle at least 3 times per week and are in the 'Green Zone', will earn 5 epraise points per app.  For Doodle spell, children do no need to be in the Green Zone, but must complete 3 practise sessions and their test.
