What do you need to help the teachers in your school teach writing effectively? Great lesson ideas? Teaching resources? Model texts? Tools that support peer assessment?

Pobble has them all. In fact, Pobble provides everything you need to teach writing.

Pobble is always evolving, finding new ways to bring magic to the teaching of writing and save teachers time. We’ve got exciting new tools to support your teaching as well as our trusty favourites and because teachers and parents tell us that writing will be the hardest hit by school closures. We want to help. 

Support the entire writing process

Pobble supports the writing process from start to finish. It combines unique, high-quality content, with cutting edge digital tools that support formative assessment. You’ll find everything from the best teaching resources and ready-made lessons to planning, publishing and moderation tools. Writing sorted!

WAGOLLs for every writing genre

Good WAGOLLs (What A Good One Looks Like) or model texts aren’t easy to come by. Teachers often end up writing their own or using one from a textbook. On Pobble, you’ll find thousands of ‘real-life’ examples of children’s writing. It’s the world’s largest bank of children’s handwritten work, searchable by age, genre or topic. Ideal for exemplification, finding ideas and lesson inspiration.
