As part of their home learning pack, your child will have brought home a username and password for "Numbots". For those of you with older children in the school, Numbots is the Key Stage 1 part of the Times Table Rockstars website. Numbots is a website that contains activities to practice number skills such as number bonds and addition and subtraction.
There are two play modes: Story Mode (which is for understanding) and Challenge Mode (which is for "testing" recall). In each mode, the more questions children answer correctly, the more levels they will unlock. If it seems easy at first, don't worry, it will move to trickier challenges over time.
The key is little and often: spaced practice is more effective than long blocks of practice.
Your child will be in control of which level they are on; it is dependent on questions they've answered to unlock further levels.
This should be a fun activity to support your child's consolidation of important Maths facts - let them explore and enjoy!
