Mental Maths Challenges

Year 2

Children complete their Mental Maths Challenge every week and compete to see which class can get the highest score! This includes a range of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division arithmetic sums to support children's recall, encouraging them to move towards instant recall rather than relying on using their fingers to solve sums.

 

Years 3 and 4

Children can earn bronze, silver and gold badges (which they have designed themselves) for knowing their times tables. Children will need to get full marks three weeks in a row to earn their badge, first earning bronze, then silver, then gold!

 

Years 5 and 6

Children complete their Mental Maths Challenge every week and compete to see which class can get the highest score and take the trophy back to their class for the week! These challenges include a range of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division arithmetic sums, as well as converting between fractions, decimals and percentages and converting measures. This is vital for our children, as efficient mental strategies are foundations for learning other mathematical techniques.

School is now closed for the summer holidays, school will re-open for children on Monday 7th September 2020 at 8:55am, all the staff at Brettenham hope you have a good summer holiday and keep safe and well...........
