Sumdog Avatar Design Competition (Y7 & Y8) - Deadline for Entries Monday 24th January

We know our students love Sumdog! It has already been great for helping maths Maths and Spellings competitive fun and we look forward to other Hertfordshire and St Francis Trust competitions this spring. Now Sumdog want students to help them make their website even better! Year 7 and Year 8 students are being invited to have a go at designing their own avatar. There are prizes from Sumdog as well as for the best entry in each year group in school. All entries will count towards the competition element of the St Mary's Award. The deadline for handing in entries to maths teachers or directly to Mrs Wilkin is Monday 24th January.

Here's what Sumdog have to say: Ask your students to draw their own avatar on our drawing template (PDF, 79KB) or on a piece of paper – if they could have anything at all in the platform what would they want to see? A representation of themselves? A cool outfit? A new hairstyle? From 10th – 31st January 2022 we’re running our Sumdog Avatar Competition to find out how your pupils would like us to make our avatars even better. From some early research we know children want to feel represented in their avatars within games they play and so our aim this year is to make that happen on Sumdog.
This will be a great way for your pupils to shape the future of Sumdog and see their ideas come to life – there will also be some exciting prizes up for grabs!
