This week is Corbet School’s virtual Open Week and all information about the school and how parents can apply to join next September is now available on their school website: https://corbetschool.net/parents/open-week/
It has been clear since the resumption of school that the pupils in Jaguar need to develop their confidence, speed and rapid recall of their times tables. Therefore, we are introducing a maths programme called Frog Club in Jaguar class. This is an initiative that encourages children to have faster recall of number facts.The programme starts with the 10 club and goes through to 99 club and then onto Superstars Division and Superstars Fractions.
By learning these number facts, we really hope that this programme will help your child carry out calculations more easily as they learn to use and apply their knowledge.
Each week, on a Friday, the children will have 5 minutes to complete the test for the club they have been assigned. In order to move on to the next club, they must answer all questions correctly in the time.
Below is a list of all the clubs and the content covered in each.
You can help your child at home by practising fast recall of the number facts in each club. Click on the link to access each test. They can also use other maths online resources to help them to develop and practise their speed.
