Review of Pobble
Chelsea Hughes

Y6 Team Leader/ Teacher

Used Pobble for 3 years

Jan 2020

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.
