As part of our contingency planning in the event of a move to online learning, the school has invested in two new online learning platforms – Bug Club and The Maths Factor to complement our existing online learning platforms – Accelerated Reader, MyOn, Purple Mash and Lexia.
The Maths Factor is Carol Vorderman’s online maths tutoring site for primary school-aged children. The Maths Factor aims to provide a nurturing approach, that allows children to learn at their own pace and achieves astounding improvements, in maths confidence. Featuring a ‘Maths Factor Park’, with lively videos, short lessons, exercises and educational games that children can play to help them learn, it is also matched to the National Curriculum.
There are over 1000 daily sessions that progress in micro-steps to build confidence: each session comprises a video, followed by a fun warm-up and then a more formal exercise. A range of products are offered in the subscription including the ‘main’ Maths Factor Course, Revision Clubs, Times Tables Catch-up, Mighty Algebra Club and, when the time comes, popular Summer and Winter Clubs. Medals can be won in the challenges, and there is a tower of achievement. Parents can view more information at https://www.themathsfactor.com/
All pupils, from P1 – P7 can use The Maths Factor. Children have been provided with login info.
