+ - Maths At WJAW x ÷
We follow the White Rose Maths Hub scheme allowing our children to experience a broad and balanced Maths journey that follows the three aims of the curriculum: Problem solving, Fluency and Reasoning. Maths at WJAW allows teachers to adapt and change plans according to the needs of the children as we feel this is the crux of success in mathematics; allowing for accelerated progress. Times tables are practised daily and every lesson has a warm up to engage the children and get their minds 'maths ready' before commencing on that day's objective.
Sumdog is an online game website which has fun maths games. The questions are based KS2 age-related mental maths skills where speed and accuracy is very important.
Every child in the school has a subscription to SUMDOG which can be used in school and at home.
Times Table Rockstars
Times Table Rock Stars takes on two forms in our school: every day children take a times table test. It takes 3 minutes, there are 50/60 questions which are multiplication or division questions based on the weekly times table, and there is LOUD rock music playing.
There is also an online game website that tests speed and accuracy of multiplication questions and the related division facts.
Every child has a login to Time Table Rock Stars which can be used in school and at home!
