Times tables are still a key focus and you should your test your child regularly so they can earn their badges. The target for all children is to have their Platinum badge by the end of the summer term. Every child in year 5 has access to a website/app called ‘Times Table Rockstars’. For children who use this app regularly, we have noticed a significant improvement in their recall of multiplication and division facts.
All children in Year 5 now have access to an online website called ‘Prodigy Maths’. Prodigy maths is a free, adaptive maths game for Key Stage 2 that integrates maths reasoning and arithmetic into a role-playing game using a Pokemon-style wizardry theme. Children will all have received a leaflet with their username and password and can use the website as much as they want.
