Form Time Numeracy 

Form time numeracy now takes place with years 7 and 8 once per week. We are using Times Tables Rockstars where students are challenged in restricted time to answer as many times tables and division questions as they can. All students have been shown the online site Times Tables Rockstars and asked to download the app to their mobile devices to help in practice for the forthcoming weekly challenge that the form teachers set following the programme put together by the maths department. In getting students to use a variety of mental strategies to work solutions to problems set outside the maths classroom we aim to encourage better understanding.
The numeracy challenges contribute to the college point which in turn brings some element of challenge and contribution from every student alongside being a component in developing good numeracy skills.

Each half term we hope to bring results for the top forms in
Year 7
Year 8
And we will bring you pictures of current winners in due course.

We’d like to thank the Form Tutors who are working hard with their students on their tables and divisions, that is bringing a great sense of pride. Some very constructive rivalry between the forms is already becoming evident as the challenges progress over the weeks. Congratulations to all.
