'TT Rock Stars’ and 'NumBots' are fun and challenging platforms designed to help children master key number facts and times tables. All children from EYFS to Year 6, have individual login details. Children can play at home, as well as school.
Please see your child's teacher if you need these details to be re-issued.

Please encourage your child to login regularly, as this will help them continue to improve their maths fluency, whilst having lots of fun!
As part of our drive for fluency and to support children to flourish in their mathematical ability, homework opportunities for each year group are focused on the maths curriculum, in addition to reading.
Each child has a log in to maths.co.uk and is set tasks to complete from home. We also use ESSENTIAL homework tasks, which are closely linked to the children's learning in the classroom.
Year 3 and Year 5 maths challenge
As part of our commitment to make maths exciting and high profile in our school, our Year 3 and 5 children compete each year with over 200 schools in the Herts for Learning maths challenge. It requires a team of 4 pupils to work together, challenging the group to communicate, negotiate and reason to reach a collective decision. Time limits for questions serve as an extra challenge. Our teams compete with courage, friendship resilience and perseverance and complete both memory rounds, estimation rounds and answer challenging general maths problems.
A huge well done to our participants for 2023.
We look forward to recruiting our current Year 3's and Year 5's in teams of 4's for the 2024 challenge! This year, there will also be a Year 4 maths challenge in the Summer Term.
NSPCC Number Day
We are excited to take part in NSPCC Number Day yearly, where we take part in maths activities throughout the day. We raise funds for the NSPCC by holding a Maths themed House Day in which children compete in their teams across the school to earn House Points for their team.
2022-2023: Children dressed in their House Colours and completed number problems in order to earn House Points for their teams. EYFS tackled maths problems hidden around their classroom and had to be the quickest team to hunt down the 9 coloured 'blobs' for their team! A huge well done to our EYFS Frithsden team who came first and banked 400 house points by 9.30am!
Next came Year 1, Year 2 and Year 3 who had to race to the finish line with the support of their Year 6 House Captains. The remainder of KS2 had a challenge on their hands, which saw them answer tricky number problems including having to follow compass directions which led them to hidden objects within their classrooms!
A great day was had by all. A huge thank you as always to everyone who took part and to those who donated money to the NSPCC. Thank you to our Year 6 House Captains who led their teams brilliantly.
