Helping at home

In order to maximise opportunities for success in maths, it is important to help out at home. To support with this, we have compiled some printable resources, information on education apps we use in school that can also be used at home and a list of useful websites.

Maths Apps used in School
 
TT Rockstars and Numbots

 

Numbots

NumBots is an online game (currently only playable at play.numbots.com or through the numbots app) that we offer to our children from Year 1 upwards. Playing little and often will significantly improve your child’s recall and understanding of number bonds and addition and subtraction facts. These are critical foundations in maths so we are excited by the impact NumBots will have.

 

Little and often

In order to get the best out of NumBots childre regularly play for short bursts but have regular opportunities at school. 

 

Game Types

1. Story Mode – the emphasis is on learning the ideas and concepts behind addition and subtraction so it features more diagrams, shapes and question styles.

2. Challenge Mode – the emphasis is more on speed of recall of key facts, like number bonds to 10, doubling small numbers or adding & taking away in your head

Below is a video that explains how NumBots works.

TT Rockstars

TT Rockstars is a game that helps children rehearse and memorise their timestables facts. We off this to pupils from Year 4 and up.

There are six main game types at the heart of TT Rock Stars and they differ according to whether or not the tables are set for the pupils, and whether they're single player or multiplayer - see 'Game Types'

Frequency of practice is key with learning the tables so the way you use the webgames depends on how often you can get the pupils in front of a computer at school

It's more effective to practice three minutes a day at least four times a week than practising for the same total duration once a week.
