In school today, we have launched 'Numbots', an online game from the creators of Times Tables Rock Stars, which is aimed at boosting children's addition and subtraction skills.
Studies have shown that 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.
The children have already logged on and had a go. The game can be accessed online from home using an IPad or laptop so please encourage them to keep practising. The user names and passwords are the same as for TT Rock Stars so many children may already know them. However, we will be sending written copies of these out next week. In the meantime, here are a few images of what we've been up to. ... See MoreSee Less
