Maths

MyMaths

As many of you are aware 'MyMaths' is an online learning tool designed to support the maths learning your children do in school.  Many of the teachers use the website’s lesson tools when teaching new concepts or revisiting previous learning. Each teacher also sets regular homework to support and enhance what they are teaching and to help the children gain more confidence and a better understanding of maths.

Many children at Windmills are using the site and completing the homework regularly. However, some children and parents have mentioned issues with logging into the site and accessing the learning which is being set. The aim of this update is to provide parents and pupils with information regarding logging in and accessing the tasks set as well as the other activities which are available on the site. Please click on the documents below to read this guidance in full. You can access the MyMaths site from here.

The TT Rockstars website is very straight forward to use and, once logged in, the children can play 1 minute games to earn tokens which can be spent on upgrading their own 'Rock Avatar'. As per our homework policy, we would expect the children to login and practise a minimum of 3 times a week for 10 minutes to try and improve their speed and accuracy. There is also a TT Rockstars App that can be downloaded to phones and tablets to make it as accessible as possible. The website also offers the opportunity for children to play against their friends or other children in their Year group.
