Maths Week Competition!

Janet Spencer (j.spencer) on: Maths Blog

November 2019

Dear parent/carer,

As part of our commitment to make maths exciting and high profile in our school, we are taking part in competition next week that is part of Maths Week England. It’s called Rock Out 2019 and it’s all done online via play.ttrockstars.com.

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 11th, Tuesday 12th, Wednesday 13th, Thursday 14th, Friday 15th and Saturday 16th.

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.

Thanks for your support,

The School

Mathematics at Gildersome Primary School

Janet Spencer (j.spencer) on: Maths Blog

Mathematics teaches us how to make sense of the world around us through developing a child’s ability to calculate fluently, to reason and to solve problems. It enables children to understand and appreciate relationships and pattern in their everyday lives. At our school, we aim to develop strong, confident Mathematicians who are have a ‘can do’ attitude to Mathematics. We strongly believe in our unique Mastery approach we have devised to meet the specific needs of our children so that ALL children will succeed.

At Gildersome Primary School we aim to:

  • promote enjoyment and enthusiasm for learning through practical activity, exploration and discussion
  • promote confidence and competence with numbers and the number system
  • develop the ability to solve problems through decision-making and reasoning in a range of contexts
  • develop a practical understanding of the ways in which information is gathered and presented
  • explore features of shape and space, and develop measuring skills in a range of contexts
  • understand the importance of mathematics in everyday life
  • promote a love of Mathematics!
