Useful Websites to support learning


Use NumBots at home so your child can improve their recall and fluency in mental addition and subtraction, so that they move from counting to calculating. 

Designed for use both in class and at home, our 1-minute maths app helps children build greater number confidence and fluency. It’s all about targeted practice in engaging, one-minute chunks!




Times Tables Rockstars is a great way for your child to learn their times tables in a fun way, battling it out with others, beating their previous times and making their way to becoming an ultimate Rock Legend. Children should have their log in information in their reading records. However, please contact us if they are having issues logging in.
