Times Tables Rock Stars

This is a fantastic resource that we use in school to boost pupils's knowledge and understanding of their times tables.

It encourages some healthy competition as the children climb the league tables and become 'Rock Superstars'. We have been having a big push on it at school but we would encourage children to use it at home, too, so that they can boost their quick thinking skills and become totally times-table proficient.

Like our school app, it is a free download and all children have an individual user name and password.

If you have any further questions, either download the parent guide here or please contact Mr D Wadsworth via the school office.

Curriculum Enrichment

 

The children in Years 5 and 6, who are in Set 1 or 2, took part in the annual Primary Maths Challenge during the week beginning 11th November 2019 and it was a  particularly tricky challenge full of reasoning problems.  Everyone tried their very best and showed we have some extremely clever mathematicians at Hill View Juniors.  Gold, Silver and Bronze certificates were given out in assembly to the children and we await to see if any of our highest scoring children make it through to the National Finals in February 2020.

 

Gold Certificate awarded to:

Isabella, Liam, Matthew, Maia, Layla, Georgia T, Charlotte, Daniel and Jay (Year 6)

and Max B and Alexandra W (Year 5)
