Select the option you would like to find out more about:

How to use the house as a reward

The Sumdog house has lots of fun things in it for your children to play with as a reward for their hard work on Sumdog. For example, children can:

  • Play with their pets
  • Design their room
  • Access the Store (students can only spend coins they have earned in Sumdog)
  • Access the Garden
  • Dress up their avatar
  • Add friends
  • Change the way your avatar looks

If your child’s account is connected to a school, the house will normally be closed during school hours but you will be able to control the house opening after school hours. If your child’s account is not connected to a school you will be able to control the house open/closed status at any time.

These instructions explain how to open and close the house for your children. This option may only be available outside of school hours if your child’s account is connected to a school.

Click on the slider in the ‘House’ box to open the house.

Click on the slider again to close the house

Sending Coin rewards

Coins can be used by children to buy items to decorate their house or avatar in the Sumdog store. Children can only spend coins they have earnt by playing games or that have been sent to them by a teacher or parent in the game.

This is a subscription feature.

These instructions explain how to send your children coins as a reward with a message. Note: a child can only be rewarded with coins once a day.

When you set work for your children they will earn bonus coins when they complete their activity.

Example: If you’ve set the correct answer target for a challenge at 50 once your children have answered 50 questions correctly they will be rewarded with 50 bonus coins. This is in addition to the coins they will earn when they answer the questions correctly on the game.

When you set an Assessment for your children they will earn 5 coins for each correct answer instead of the normal 1 per correct answer when playing the game.
