‘Mathematics is the music of reason’James Joseph Sylvester
Maths at Rainbow:
We aim help all children realise that they can achieve in Maths. Look out for exciting opportunities across the year where you can see how Maths is taught and how we ensure all pupils are engaged in lessons. Further details of these opportunities will be posted on Class Dojo and the class stories when they are taking place.
To help use remember our times tables facts, each child has been given a log in for Times Tables Rockstars. The more your practise the more coins you can earn to upgrade your Rockstar and your instruments. Challenge your teachers to see who truly knows their tables more. Over the year, look out for information on Class Dojo about Battle of the Bands and the League of Legends. Make sure you are practising regularly to ensure that you come out on top!
Children are being set weekly homework from their new CGP Maths book. This will be related to topics that they have covered in class already and will be marked in lesson with the teacher so we can discuss the answers and how found them.
Ways you can help:
Encourage your children to practise their Maths skills regularly. Ask them to add together the cost of items at the shop, read the time for you when you need it, find numbers and shapes while out an about.
