Schofield and Sims
We are using Schofield and Sims mental arithmetic books regularly in school. They provide a valuable opportunity for children to practise a wide range of mathematical skills and help to highlight areas of weakness to teachers.
The books contain a rich variety of mathematical language and expose children to problems worded in different ways.
More information and examples can be found on their website. http://www.schofieldandsims.co.uk/mental-arithmetic
Grand Master of Multiplication
Our Grand Master of Multiplication tests are used each term to track how well children are progressing with their times tables knowledge. Levels 1 – 11 have 20 questions each whilst level 12 has 40 questions. Children are given 2 minutes to complete the test. At least once each term children will be tested and can try to achieve the next level (and get the next badge!).
Tests will not be handed out for children to learn as they can learn what answers go where without learning their tables! If you would like to support your child reaching the next level this LIST shows what is contained in each level.
