In year six it is crucial that the children are comfortable with their times tables. There will be very little time in maths lessons to focus on this, any time spent at home could be written down and brought to your maths group teacher. I am sure they will be very appreciative and it could earn you extra house points!
The Year 6 Team
Last Thursday the children in year six were introduced to Prodigy Games. This is a secure website in which they can create an avatar with a pre-selected name.
The game itself is an adventure maths game. The children will come up against creatures that they can have a 'maths battle' against. They can upgrade their level and purchase new items to customise their avatar with a digital currency won through battling.
So far, the children have fully embraced this game. With over 800 maths questions being answered on Saturday 22nd September alone! This game provides a different approach to help children develop their various mathematical knowledge.
If any child has forgotten or lost their log on to their account please ask Mr Smith.
