NumBots is an online game and playing little and often will significantly improve your child’s recall and understanding of number bonds and addition and subtraction facts. These are critical foundations in maths.
- Story Mode – the emphasis is on learning the ideas and concepts behind addition and subtraction so it features more diagrams, shapes and question styles.
- Challenge Mode – the emphasis is more on speed of recall of key facts, like number bonds to 10, doubling small numbers or adding & taking away in your head.
Children are given log ins from Year 1. The programme is predominately used in years 1 and 2, though can be accessed in years 1-6.
Children years 1 and 2 can compete to win weekly certificates given out in Friday’s celebration assembly. These are awarded for biggest improvements in accuracy, coins earned and correct answers.
