EducationCity host best PlayLive Challenge Week ever!

The EducationCity annual PlayLive Challenge, which took place between the 17th and 22nd June, was a phenomenal success, with a record number of children taking part. All in all, over 7,340 students participated in the two-day competition.

The aim of the week was to crown the PlayLive Maths and English Champions for the year, as well as boost excitement and engagement surrounding Maths and English, and to this end, the company opened up the competition to all schools, not just their subscribing schools and schools already taking a trial with them.

Individual PlayLive Maths and PlayLive English competitions were run for each year group, with the two UK-based schools and two international schools gaining the highest score overall being given the PlayLive Maths and English Champion title for their geographic area.

“We are absolutely delighted by the number of students who took part in our PlayLive Challenge Week this year, especially given how busy schools are at this time of year,” says Richard Whalley, Managing Director of EducationCity. “It’s great to see, and fantastic to be part of. We love to throw down the gauntlet with this challenge and are always amazed by the students’ speedy recall and input. It’s really tough to get 190 points in just 60 seconds!”

Upon hearing of their win, Matt Livesey from Beeston Hill St Luke’s C of E Primary School was delighted and quick to endorse the use of EducationCity in the classroom. He said: “EducationCity has become a staple of our learning here at St Luke's. When it’s mentioned the first reaction from the children is always, ‘Can we go on PlayLive?’ The pupils have a level of engagement that is unparalleled and we can see the results in their work.”

The PlayLive Maths challenge included challenges dedicated to addition, subtraction, division and multiplication. The PlayLive English challenge is a word-formation challenge where the objective is to make as many words as possible.
