  • DoodleTables EasTer Challenge!

    Published 01/04/19
    Come and join the #DoodleMathsChallenge

    Can you work out the secret phrase? 

    Kids need to:
    • Use DoodleTables each day for 14 days in a row from the 8th April - 21 April 2019

    • Each day a new Easter Egg will appear in DoodleTables within the Learn questions containing a secret letter. When an egg is found, children simply need to smash it open to reveal a letter which belongs to the secret phrase. On the home screen of the app, children will find another egg - the letters will automatically be added in here to help them work out the secret phrase.
    Adults need to:
    • Post on social media twice, tagging @DoodleMaths and using the hashtag #DoodleMathsChallenge.

    • Your posts can either be a comment about your child or a photo of them using DoodleTables or DoodleMaths - your child doesn't have to be recognisable in the photo! Don't forget to tag us and use the hashtag!

      If you do not use social media please email us at
    To claim your reward

    Simply fill in the form. We'll verify your competition entry and, if valid, send your child their reward! If your child has a school account, we will send their prize to their school to award.

    We must receive all entries by Wednesday 24 April at 12 noon.

    Good luck and Happy Doodling!

    Mrs Westie :)

  • Wednesday Club update

    Published 25/03/19

    Crossdale school has had a long history of running a toddler group on a Wednesday morning. This is something both the school and Windmills Childcare now run jointly. Over the past term the expansion of Windmills, staffing and school timetabling issues have resulted in us having to temporarily postpone the group for the foreseeable future. We are very committed to ensuring the group will be up and running as soon as we can. We apologise for any inconvenience caused and if anyone is interested in volunteering to help run the group please contact either Mr Cresswell or Julie Gerrard. We thank you for your patience with this matter.
