1st November 2020
As part of our commitment to make maths exciting and high profile in our school, this November we are taking part in Maths Week England.
Here are the details of the competitions that we have entered, as the children will have opportunities to play in school but may wish to carry on with these at home.
Rock Out 2020 via play.ttrockstars.com. for children in Year 1 to 6
For every correct answer to a multiplication or division question, your child will earn their class a point. The Times Tables Rock Stars platform will calculate the class average (the number of correct answers per pupil in the class who play during the competition hours). Winning classes in the school and in the country as a whole will be the ones with the highest average.
All game modes (Gig, Garage, Studio, etc.) will count but only from games played between 7.30am and 7.30pm on Monday 9th, Tuesday 10th, Wednesday 11th, Thursday 12th, Friday 13th and Saturday 14th.
In the spirit of the competition, please don’t play on their behalf but by all means encourage and support them to the extent that it doesn’t cause high stress levels or impact on family plans. We suggest a limit of half an hour a day outside school hours – some will play more, some will play less.
Update! The results are in! MWE 2020 was a competitive one. A total of 3,887 schools, 31,039 classes, 433,924 pupils took part and answered a total of 441.93 million questions answered correctly.
M-Fluencers Math Quest via www.mangahigh.com. This competition is as an opportunity for children in Year 1 - 6 to have fun and improve their mathematics learning.
