Pobble 365: The journey so far

The power of Pobble 365 as a writing resource is undeniable. The unique, engaging images for each day of the year, coupled with story starters, questions and writing challenges have become a "go-to" daily resource for teachers everywhere.

What started in a single classroom is now used by teachers from 160 countries and inspires over a million children to write each month! Pobble's mission is to inspire the world's children to write, so we could not be more proud of Pobble 365's reach and impact so far. 

Pobble 365: a racing car with wooden wheels!

When we built Pobble 365 six years ago, we had no idea it would become so popular! However, when lockdowns began, Pobble 365 saw a seven times increase in daily users overnight! As well as being promoted to teachers by governments around the world, from Australia to Canada, to Northern Ireland, Pobble 365 was also named in Waitrose’s 6 best websites to keep children happy! 

As teachers ourselves, we know that the reliability of your classroom tech is absolutely paramount. Now, with the sheer volume of people using Pobble 365, it's becoming harder and harder to guarantee this stable and secure platform for our users. As a result, 12 months ago, we took the tough decision to rebuild Pobble 365 and create a new home for it, one designed to support teachers to inspire over 10 million young writers each month. 

Over the last 15 months, we spent all our energy on supporting our community through the school disruptions. However, in the background, we have been preparing Pobble 365's new home and improving it for you.

Now is the time for the big reveal! 

A new home for improved Pobble 365

Pobble 365 will now sit within a new home on the Pobble platform (www.pobble.com). You'll still find all the same wonderful images and writing activities that you love. However, you'll also find a significantly enhanced design and a number of new features that will allow you to do so much more with Pobble 365!

These include: 

  • Save – bookmark your favourite Pobble 365 images and activities for later.
  • Edit – customise Pobble 365 activities for your context.
  • Search – find the Pobble 365 lessons you want based on topic or genre.
  • Present – with the new present function you can present or share anywhere!

The best thing? Pobble 365 will remain free for you forever!
