We are currently trialling a new maths programme that will help develop children's multiplication and division skills. In Year 1, we will start to cover the multiplication tables for 2, 5 and 10. This programme will help develop their knowledge of these times tables by setting timed activities for the children to complete. It is similar to Spelling Shed in the way that you can earn points to upgrade and customise your character.
This is not compulsory for Year 1, and also the games may seem incredibly challenging, considering that the children have not experienced the x symbol or the divide symbol yet. But to test it out and see what the programme is like, we would highly recommend it.
Below is a link to the programme. The username and passwords should be stuck in the front of your child's reading diary. If your child does not have a username or password, just let Mr Armishaw know and I can provide you with a username and password.
Have fun rockstars!
