SumDogWe have used this in school for a few years now and is a games based approach to practising key skills in maths. SumDog records which types of questions you need work on therefore the more you play the more accurate it will be!
Times Table ChallengeA series of times table sheets going up to 12x table. This is a SIMPLE BUT EFFECTIVE way of drilling these tables. Each page has a simple times table grid at the top then a different level one underneath. The higher the level, the more mixed up the numbers are. All the answers are available on a PowerPoint by clicking here.
Our SEAL ProgressionsSEAL is a programme we use in school from P1-P4 which focuses on key aspects of number (e.g. number bonds, backwards sequences, counting in 2s, 3s, 4s). This guide identifies the expectations at each stage. It’s quite handy to look at and say we’ll have some ‘quick, snappy’ practise of that bullet point today.
