Supporting Maths at Home

This year we have purchased a new online service to support your child’s maths education. The creators of Times Table Rock Stars have produced a platform for boosting addition and subtraction skills, called Numbots.

Numbots is an online game and playing little and often will significantly improve children’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.

Children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are expected to play Numbots at least 3 times per week as part of their home learning and will work their way through the Numbots levels that get progressively harder. 

Children in Year 2 also have the option of logging on to TT Rockstars, where they will be able to practise their 10, 5 and 2 times tables and collect coins for correct answers which they can exchange for new clothes and instruments for their avatar.
