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.

 

Great Mathematicians

During Mr Wadsworth’s assembly on 25th February 2020, Year 6 Set 1 shared with the whole school their ideas for what qualities great mathematicians have:

  • Curiosity
  • Positive thinking
  • Perseverance
  • Logical approach
  • Taking your time
  • Focussed
  • Good memory
  • A broad knowledge
  • Challenge yourself
  • Be determined
  • Confident to try
  • Creative
  • Questioning
  • Like maths
  •  Be thorough

 

 

All the other maths sets in school then voted for the classmate that they think shows these qualities the most. Special certificates were then awarded by their Maths teacher.

Congratulations to all our Great Mathematicians!

Happy Puzzle Company Visit

During January 2020, all of our pupils took part in a practical workshop to encourage and develop logic and reasoning skills in a fun way.  Staff really enjoyed the sessions, even if they found puzzles tricky themselves.  Some children and parents even visited the shop after school to buy a puzzle to try at home.  Take a look at some of the photos of the event below:

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)

 

Congratulations to Liam and Isabella (Year 6) who have been confirmed to have made it to the next round.  Well Done!
