Maths is an essential tool for our everyday life. At Woodsetts we believe that all children should have daily access to fun, lively and engaging lessons. Did you know that on average we use all four calculation operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division) in our everday lives?

The key to many mathematical questions are by knowing the times tables up to 12 x 12 by heart. In school we have a times table of the month to learn. At the end of the month each child is tested and a celebration assembly follows. Certificates are awared, to achieve a bronze award children must know their table in order. To achieve a silver award children must know their table out of order. To achieve a gold award children must know their table out of order and with some division skills.
In school we sing and learn these tables using Percy Parker. Sing your times tables with Percy Parker is an exciting alternative to traditional methods of learning the times tables. Children join in with the charismatic Percy Parker and his band as they sing entertaining, memorable songs about each times table.

Homework for mathematics is set each week by class teachers using the My Maths webpage. Each class teacher tailors the homework to the needs of the children and in line with work that has been covered in class throughout that week.
For ease, My Maths can be accessed through both computers and tablets.
When your child logs on to use Bug Club, look what activities have now been allocated to them to enhance their learning in Numeracy! In line with teaching in the classroom, tutorials, games and activities can be used to reinforce learning at home. This is done in a fun and informative way that allows children to earn tokens and build their own worlds!
