iPads are great for testing our mental maths skills!
On Friday in class we used the iPads to develop our mental maths skills. The Maths Bash app was fantastic for helping us recognise multiples and doubles.
Super Hero Tables Challenge
The aim of the Superhero Tables Challenge is to encourage the children to learn their table facts whilst having fun at the same time. Every child in Year 6 is set a times table Super Hero target to work on. We expect them to work on this target and learn the times table facts so they can recall them quickly without counting on in steps. They also need to learn the related division facts. The children are encouraged to see this practice as “training” to defeat their superhero. Every few weeks, every child in year 6 has an opportunity to sit a times table challenge for their level. If they get no more than 5 questions wrong and complete it in less than 5 minutes, they will have ‘defeated’ their superhero and will receive a certificate. They will then automatically move onto the next superhero.
Accordingly, we will use the following certificate reward system:
§ BATMAN-2x, 5x, 10x
§ HAWK-GIRL-3X, 4X
§ THOR, 6X 7X, 8X
§ BLACK WIDOW- 9X, 11X, 12X
§ SUPERMAN-All with division
§ CATWOMAN-All with place value- THU and tenths
§ IRONMAN-2 digits X 1 digit (e.g. 74 X 7)
§ WONDEROWMAN-Fractions, decimals and percentages of quantities (e.g. 20% of 25, ¼ of 50)
We provide many opportunities at school for the children to practice but also expect that families support their children with this work at home. There are 8 Superheroes to defeat… Get practising Y6B!!
