All children in Year 1 – Year 6 have access to a learning website called ‘Mathletics’. Many children are already using this website both in and outside of school to consolidate the learning they do in the classroom. The children particularly enjoy ‘Live Mathletics’, where they can compete against their friends and improve their recall of number facts such as times tables.
Today Mathletics is updating its website so that it is more ‘user friendly’. Please encourage your child/children to log on to Mathletics and explore the new layout. If they get more than 1000 points in a week, they will even receive a certificate! In the past month, 200 certificates have been achieved by Brooklands Farm children! Let’s see if there can be even more this month!
If you have any queries about using Mathletics, please ask your child’s class teacher.
At parents evening, lots of parents said that it would be helpful to have a list of websites for children to go on at home to practice their times tables and other number facts and their spellings. Here is a list of websites with links to games and to sites where you can download worksheets which all link to the Year 4 standard.
