Do you want to take part in the Maths Challenges over the summer? Do you want your children to keep busy over the holidays practising their maths skills?

We are running two maths challenges over the summer - see the details and links below. 

  1. Real-life Maths Challenges 

Click on the year group you have just finished and bring in as many of the answers as possible on a sheet of paper. You can do one question or all the questions! There will be some prizes for children who return their work in September. 

       2. TT Rockstars 
There will be prizes awarded to children who achieve the most points on TT Rockstars over the summer holidays. Miss Armitage will check the results in September. 
Times tables are essential to learn as they form the foundations of many units of maths. Will you be a winner? 

Remember, you can use TT Rockstars on mobiles, ipads, computers or any electrical device now for free! 

Have a lovely holiday and keep those maths skills ticking over!
