We are delighted to be using a new online learning platform to support your child's maths education. The creators of Times Tables Rock Stars have produced a platform for boosting addition and subtraction skills, called NumBots. Most importantly, children in both Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 can all access the games!
What is Numbots?
NumBots is an online game and 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.
Little and often
In order to get the best out of NumBots children should regularly play for short bursts so we would ask you to give them 5 minutes each evening (or more!)
Story Mode – the emphasis is on learning the ideas and concepts behind addition and subtraction so it features more diagrams, shapes and question styles.
Challenge Mode – the emphasis is more on speed of recall of key facts, like number bonds to 10, doubling small numbers or adding & taking away in your head.
