Welcome to Maths!
The government says that as well as being critical for everyday life, knowledge of multiplication tables helps children to solve problems quickly and flexibly, and allows them to tackle more complex mathematics later on in school.
This is why all pupils at All Saints have been assigned a login for the TTRS website.
We also follow the Abacus scheme, which teaches maths via the Mastery approach.
The Mastery approach originates from Singapore and follows the idea that the class only moves on to the next lesson when the majority have 'mastered' the particular skills involved.
Maths is part of our daily lives and you can practise mental arithmetic where ever you are!
Here are just a few ideas for practising maths at home:
Here are some Purple Mash maths games, as recommended by Y6 pupils:
Bond Bubbles/ Number Bond Mixture - number bonds
2 Race - the four operations
Sequence Snake - number patterns
Dividers - multiples
Factoroids - factors
Fractions Pizzeria - fractions
Fraction Wall - equivalent fractions
For a new idea on how to practise number facts, see the Clock Times Tables tutorial in the Video Resource Centre (under the 'Children' tab).
