We use Mathletics in school from Primary 1 to Primary 7. It is a computer based programme that encourages children to improve their mathematical skills in an environment that can range from individual activities to opportunities for your child to compete with others within Mathletics globally.
In Ormiston we set homework through Mathletics and we encourage your child to go on for short bursts on a daily basis. 10 to 15 minutes every day makes a huge difference. Some children love the competitive aspect and can be on a lot longer but you’ll know if this is right for your individual child. 10-15 minutes is a good starting place.
We award a trophies in assembly most weeks for Mathletics and you’ll be able to see our updates on our Twitter page @ormistonprimary each week.
