Welcome to Meridian Community Primary School & Nursery"We love learning at Meridian because it's fun" (Year 1)"We use learning behaviours to make us better learners" (Year 2)"Meridian is friendly and welcoming " (Year 3)"We collaborate to make colourful learning walls!" (Year 4)"We enjoy celebrating special events" (Year 5)"We go on adventures to support our learning" (Year 6)“This is a calm and purposeful school where pupils enjoy learning and are very proud of their school and how their teachers help them to learn” Ofsted November 2018

We are delighted to inform you about a new exciting game we’re using to support your child’s maths. The creators of Times Tables Rock Stars have produced a platform for boosting addition and subtraction skills, called NumBots.

 

Big Difference

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 so we are excited by the impact NumBots will have.

 

Logging In

Today the children were all shown how the game works and how to login. Their logins have been stuck on the inside cover of their reading record. Please make a note of their username and password if they should lose their reading record. If you would like your child to have a go at home you just need to download the FREE Numbots app from your app store.  Alternatively if you’re playing on a PC or laptop visit https://play.numbots.com/

 

Little and often

In order to get the best out of NumBots children should regularly play for short bursts so we recommend 5 minutes each day.

 

Game Types

  1. Story Mode – the emphasis is on learning the ideas and concepts behind addition and subtraction so it features more diagrams, shapes and question styles.
  2. 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.

 

 

Please let your child’s teacher know if you have any questions or comments.
