Numbots and Times Tables Rock Stars (TTRS)
Numbots is an online resource that pupils can use to develop their understanding of the mental strategies of both addition and subtraction. This sequenced programme helps pupils to develop their understanding, recall and fluency in mental addition and subtraction.
We also use Times Tables Rock Stars (TTRS) as a tool to help pupils develop fluency in multiplication tables. Times tables and the related division facts are essential to the children’s progress and fluency in mathematics as go through the school. If this knowledge is secured, they will find other aspects of maths easier to learn. This knowledge is formally assessed when children are in year 4.
