Welcome to the summer maths challenge!
Here you should find everything you need to take you through the challenge towards becoming a summer maths master!
Just to recap, the challenge is to practice maths fifteen times over the summer holiday for fifteen minutes at a time.
NB The summer maths challenge has been set up so that kids can take advantage of little and often learning - so unfortunately it can't be crammed into fewer sessions!

What you need to do
First things first - have you signed up? You can do this on the website here. You will need the code given to you by your child's school - sorry, participating schools only.
Next, you need to download and install the Komodo app for your device(s).
Komodo's style of little and often learning is an effective way to learn that doesn't keep children at the screen for long periods. So we recommend three or four 15 minute sessions per week to get maximum benefit - and so that you can fully enjoy the summer break! You can even schedule reminders to make sure you don't forget!
Keeping parents posted
We'll keep you posted by email when a particular progress milestone occurs. You can send some encouragement back to your child by replying to these emails. The emails will link to your child's practice tracker.
An interactive practice tracker and certificate is built into the app - we'll email a link to your child's
Making it right for you
We know that children are all different and work at different rates, so you can make some changes in the Komodo settings by signing into the boss area of the app. Here you can
- Change lesson times or even hide the timer altogether
- Reset a lesson grade
- Change how many A* grades are needed to shortcut the stage
- Change names and passwords, and more.
