Here at Bishop Monkton Primary, we want our pupils to become competent and confident mathematicians. We strive to embed the skills and processes necessary to enable pupils to use and apply their mathematics learning in a variety of contexts. By providing opportunities for children to build a conceptual understanding, develop their basic skills, fluency and recall, before applying their knowledge to everyday problems and challenges, we aim to develop pupils’ enjoyment of mathematics. Promoting mathematical talk enables children to articulate and discuss their thinking and reasoning, developing them as independent learners. Our pupils will leave Key Stage 2 prepared for the next step in their mathematical education.
Times Table Rockstars England Rocks runs from Monday 14th November to Wednesday 16th November.
Bishop Monkton CE Primary School has entered and students will try to answer as many multiplication and division questions correctly as they can whilst the competition runs.
Owls, Herons and Eagles classes have been enrolled. Please take some time out to log in and get rocking!
On Tuesday 18th October 2022, children and staff dressed as rockstars and robots to celebrate the relaunch of Times Table Rockstars in Year 2-6 and to launch Numbots in Reception and Year 1. Wrens joined in the fun dressing up as Numberblocks too!
Children had the opportunity to revisit the programme and compete against other children in their class. Take a look at some of our super robots and rockstars on our class pages!
Maths Information Evening - How To Support Your Child With Maths At Home - March 11th 2019
"I really enjoyed tonight. It was good to see the pupils in action, showing off their maths skills. I was surprised how many of them wanted to have a go at a Year 6 SATS paper....they must be mad! "😊
"It was nice to see what work the children do in class. It's not like it was when I was at school."
"I enjoyed the event. It was lovely to see all the kids work so hard . Who said Maths is boring?" 😃
