Numbots is an online resource that we, as a school, subscribe to. It supports children in their foundation mathematical skills, including number bonds and addition & subtraction.
All children in Reception and Year 1 are encouraged to use it on a regular basis. Children in Year 2 and above may also use it if appropriate.
There are two modes:
Story Mode – the emphasis is on learning the ideas and concepts behind addition and subtraction so it features more diagrams, shapes and question styles.
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.
All children should have their login details but please speak to the class teacher if you have any questions.
You can either download the free Numbots app or visit www.play.numbots.com to play.
Below is the parent letter with further information.
