The school has now subscribed to NumBots which has been launched by the creators of Times Table Rock Stars. This programme aims to boost the recall of addition and subtraction facts and is the stage before children are ready to learn multiplication facts. Therefore, we are aiming it at Year 1 children, although some children from other year groups may benefit from using NumBots as well.
NumBots is an online game, which can also be accessed via a free app. https://play.numbots.com/#/intro
Playing little and often will significantly improve your child’s recall and understanding of number bonds and addition and subtraction facts.
Here is a quick video introduction to NumBots: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I2L9N8Nbn3Uâ€‹
From the week of 2nd November, your child will be given a log in and password to access their account.
Please encourage your children to use this programme alongside other strategies you may currently use at home. Doing just 5 minutes a day is all that is needed!
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact your child’s class teacher or Miss Gee.
