Find and build inspiring lessons, engage your pupils with tools to write, edit and publish their work, then easily moderate writing judgements online.
Think writing, think Pobble!
Good WAGOLLs (what a good one looks like) aren’t easy to come by. Teachers often end up writing their own, or use one from a textbook.
On Pobble, you’ll find thousands of ‘real-life’ examples of children’s writing in the world’s largest bank of children’s handwritten work, searchable by age, genre or topic. They are ideal for exemplification, finding ideas and lesson inspiration.
As well as our popular Pobble 365 lessons, you'll also find short, objective-based lessons covering everything from apostrophes to question marks.
Longer, themed-based presentations cover a range of writing opportunities aligned with popular curriculum topics. Plus, a new favourite with the Pobble community, Pobble News – perfect for weekly homework!
All of our lessons, including Pobble 365 are editable to suit your teaching needs. Feeling creative? You can easily build your own lesson presentation using our unique slide types.
All of the presentations are easily accessible wherever you need to share them - at home, in school or with fellow teachers… You can even print them out!
Looking to empower your pupils with their writing? With pupil logins you can send lessons to pupils, they can upload work, then using our editable success criteria slides they can self assess their writing.
All work is uploaded to the pupil evidence bank which can be used for peer assessment, worldwide publishing and to support moderation.

As teachers, we know that the key to good writing is to provide pupils with a real audience and purpose. Pobble gives children the opportunity to become a published author on your own school page.
What could be more exciting than being recognised as a star writer in your school and knowing that your work will be read by people from all over the world? Now that's a reason to write!

We've been working in partnership with North Yorkshire Local Authority to create the world's first remote moderation solution.
Our tools take the stress out of setting up and running a writing moderation meeting, making it easier to moderate with other schools and helping you to be more confident in your judgements. No more hauling books across town to moderation meetings!
