What is Pobble?

As teachers ourselves, we know that children struggle to put pen to paper so we strive to change the way they feel about writing. We create exciting content that makes it easier for teachers to engage and motivate even their most reluctant young writers, every day!

Plus, our online moderation tool allows teachers to be confident in their assessment judgements.

Pobble empowers teachers to:

· Teach daily short burst writing activities that motivate children to write more.
· Easily build a daily writing routine with a new writing prompt for every day of the year.
· Provide endless writing opportunities to help improve writing stamina.
· Reduce the workload required to plan engaging writing lessons.
· Improve the accuracy of their writing assessments.· Easily create online moderation files, save them as evidence and share them with others.
· Gain a clear understanding of what good writing looks like.

Why Pobble?

Our content is:

Unique and high-quality - We pride ourselves on making powerful resources that spark imagination and creativity and allow teachers to write with their class every day. By partnering with incredible artists and
photographers whose distinctive images complement our writing prompts, we create captivating content. Children are engaged and excited by our unique content and respond by producing page-popping writing!

Made by teachers - We're a team of like-minded educators who want to make a difference in the lives of teachers and children. Our experience and drive mean we know exactly what teachers need to teach writing effectively and what children need to feel truly inspired. Over the past 10 years, we’ve worked alongside hundreds of thousands of teachers to understand the primary writing process and develop our content and tools.

Diverse and accessible - Pobble began in the classroom of an Enhanced Mainstream and Minority Ethnic Achievement Hub School, it’s where our heart is and why we care so much about impacting every single learner. After working with a diverse base of teachers and schools from around the world with a wide variety of needs and circumstances, we were awarded a grant from the Department for Education to make our tools even more accessible for learners with additional needs. This has allowed us to develop our platform and content to be engaging and accessible for every learner, including those previously reluctant to write.

Are we any good?

When it comes to teaching writing, we're respected, trusted and proven to work...

Pobble has grown to be a multi-award-winning platform that supports and inspires young writers. Pobble was also selected as one of just 8 organisations funded, independently evaluated and supported by the UK Department for Education as a recipient of the government’s Edtech Innovation Fund. Additionally, research undertaken with UCL’s Institute of Education as part of their Educate programme shows that Pobble reduces teacher lesson planning time by 39%, whilst improving pupils' speed, confidence, and enjoyment of writing, leading to improved attainment. The best validation for us, however, is that teachers frequently tell us that they LOVE the impact Pobble has on writing in their schools. Pobble is trusted by a community of over a million teachers and students in 50 countries around the world!

Pobble has been a constant in my teaching for around 4 years now. Without it, I lose the attainment of all children within the class to try their best in writing. They want their work to be celebrated, no matter how small the progress is. With the help of Pobble presentations, resources, high quality stimuli, moderation, WAGOLLs and more teachers are able to get the children there!

Reply from Pobble:Thanks, Chelsea! What lovely feedback! We're really grateful you can take the time to share your thoughts with fellow teachers.
Chelsea Hughes found Pobble:
  • Significantly reduces teacher workload
    Quick starts in the morning, high quality stimulus, celebrating children’s writing and producing presentations for my team to use
  • Significantly reduces attainment gap
    Gives LA a reason to write. All children want their work published on Pobble and for parent’s at home to read their work
  • Significantly improves teaching efficiency
    Pobble provides stimulus, word mats, presentation scaffolds so that teachers can send each other their complete lesson
  • Moderately improves teacher knowledge
    Teachers can access children’s work from all round the world. This gives teachers an idea of how children are working at the same age range- this considerably helps moderating
  • Significantly improves attainment

It offers children a platform to publish their work. There are so many ways that staff can use the materials and enable all children have copies on their own accounts. The moderation part is amazing. It offers a focused approach to moderation with the feedback part of it enabling comments to be saved, as well as a grading to be given at the end if required. The endless amount of writing stimulus ensures there is something for everyone. The team are really supportive and if there is ever any suggestions they take it on board to continue to grow the platform. Children and staff love their Pobble publications!

Reply from Pobble:Thanks for the feedback, Anthony! We're delighted you're seeing Pobble have such an impact in your school.
Anthony McGeeney found Pobble:
  • Significantly reduces teacher workload
    Short burst writing materials are already resourced - from word banks to sentence starters. It has also been great for developing ideas. Staff can alter any of the prepopulated materials as well as send them to the children on their individual Pobble accounts.
  • Significantly reduces attainment gap
    All children are able to access the engaging images to give them a purpose to write. The scaffolded approach that children can access, from a story started to vocab and sentence work, enables all children to find their starting point and engage with the lesson and want to write with a creative purpose
  • Significantly improves teaching efficiency
    Lots of interactive ways to enable short burst writing, as well as longer pieces of writing from the stimulus given. Also, recently we have started using the moderation part which has enable the whole process of moderation in school to become very efficient and purposeful.
  • Significantly improves teacher knowledge
    The support that is given with each stimulus. Also, the online support they have with moderation has really helped refine teacher knowledge
  • Significantly improves attainment
    Pupils want to have their work published on Pobble, they have a purpose to write which has made all pupils want to improve their writing.

I can't imagine teaching without it.

Chelsea Hughes found Pobble:
  • Significantly improves attainment
    Uploading children's work onto Pobble gives the child recognition for their progress- not only the best pieces but for the most improved and that keeps children motivated.
  • Significantly reduces attainment gap
    Makes writing exciting for all children, they all want to be published on Pobble so they know they have to write in order to do that.

I love it.

Louise Robinson found Pobble:
  • Significantly improves attainment
    Engagement with texts written by other children supports my pupils (and previous cohorts) with their individual targets. Not only that but the desire to have their work on the platform ensures they try that little bit harder.
  • Slightly reduces attainment gap
  • Significantly improves teaching efficiency and productivity
    I usually spend hours creating PowerPoints and trying to make them look good etc. The presentation slides are so simple and easy to use as well as being engaging for my class. Finding examples of writing is easy too rather than me having to write out my own examples. I find that the children engage more with a text written by another pupil too.
  • Significantly reduces teacher workload
    Just the time it takes to create the lesson is significantly less than making my own slides.
  • Moderately improves teacher knowledge and skills
    The example lessons generally have an explanation with examples which helps me to understand terminology. It helps with new teachers too.

As already stated, Pobble motivates children who strive to become published authors. They are recognised and feel accomplishment when they are and this has a knock on affect with other children. The new developments in the platform are another added bonus for teachers who are able to use it to build lessons that are exciting and challenging for children, whilst reducing teachers’ workload.

Vinny Turner found Pobble:
  • Significantly improves attainment
    Children’s motivation to want to write for the platform and become published authors with their work recognised by others has demonstrated that to all in school. Children want to attain a certain standard, as they understand their efforts will be recognised by others.
  • Significantly reduces attainment gap
    All children, regardless of attainment levels are striving for their work to be published on the platform. Lower attaining children use examples of other children’s work to ‘level up’ their own writing and this clearly benefits them in their independent work too.
  • Significantly improves teaching efficiency and productivity
    The lesson builder and option to pull in various resources from the platform has ensured that teacher workload is reduced and they are able to plan great lessons as a result.
  • Significantly reduces teacher workload
    It is enabling staff to build lessons and prepare work using the one platform.
  • Moderately improves teacher knowledge and skills
    Teacher knowledge is already very good within our school, but Pobble has helped with NQTs and recently qualified teachers in supporting their development.

It's the whole package, the support behind the platform, the networking it brings, the publishing, the joy of children interacting with other children's work, the prestige of being a genuine published author, the simplicity of the website and how it links with parents and comments on work.

Rachael Wilding found Pobble:
  • Significantly improves attainment
    our primary writing results have improved in every year group in the last academic year since using the Pobble platform. It has also upskilled the teachers with the CPD sessions to ensure all writing is of a higher standard.
  • Significantly reduces attainment gap
    We have found the use of Pobble has specifically helped us close the attainment gap between boys and girls. It has also supported our SEND students to achieve results more in line with year group expectations.
  • Significantly improves teaching efficiency and productivity
    Unlike before when teachers would use prep time looking for examples of text. Students independently search out examples and are able to create their own success criteria linked to their writing focus by using Pobble examples. This has had a massive impact on all of our writing results and has boosted writing interest and confidence. Just last week I found two boys in ERIC time using Pobble as a reading text, I asked why and they said they enjoy reading other children's stories.

If I was to move on to a new school without a Pobble subscription it is something that I would definitely push to implement as I can't imagine teaching without it.

Chelsea Hughes found Pobble:
  • Significantly improves attainment
    It has had impact on children who struggle with passion to write. Giving them a reason to now put pen to paper, in the chance that they become a published Author.
  • Significantly reduces attainment gap
    It allows children to view WAGOLLs and be able to recognise the structure and language used in other people's' work. This help even the lower ability children to see what it is they need to achieve, allowing them to scaffold or magpie.
  • Significantly improves teaching efficiency and productivity
    When writing my plans I can research resources through Pobble and put lesson/ppts together using these. I can look up WAGOLLs, not only for my lessons but to help me gauge where other children in Year 6 are and what their capabilities are. Pobble365 is a quick and easy morning starter which has proven results within my class- in particular 'sick sentences'- where children can show off what they have learnt in SPAG that week.
  • Significantly reduces teacher workload
    Morning starters with Pobble365. I can search Pobble for the topic I am teaching and have access to work that other schools have done. Many of my lessons that I have planned started with a WAGOLL from Pobble. Again, the ppt tool and resources help with planning at ease. Finding all resources in one place.
  • Significantly improves teacher knowledge and skills
    By looking up topics on exemplars I can see what other schools are teaching in my year group, giving me new ideas to work with. I can also look up the age that I teach and find new topics to look into that I may not have seen before. It also help me see what children in Year 6 are capable of and therefore push the boundaries of my teaching.

Ease , engagement , variety, resources. The only down side so far is I find it difficult to navigate all the options and resources, and It seems difficult to log in and stay logged in and look at my saved stuff . But having said that, patiently navigating and exploring apps etc is not my strong suit!

Rosemary found Pobble:
  • Slightly improves attainment
    If you mean student attainment, I haven't got the data to be able to answer that
  • Slightly reduces attainment gap
  • Moderately improves teaching efficiency and productivity
    Eliminating a fruitless waste of time searching for visual stimulus. Also giving me more ideas ( and often much better ideas! ) of where to go with the stimulus.
  • Significantly reduces teacher workload
    As I described in previous answer.
  • Significantly improves teacher knowledge and skills
    Reading the considered and creative ideas that have been shared has really helped me think more deeply and laterally about how I can engage and extend my kids thinking and writing.
