Mental Maths Challenge

The new National Curriculum for Maths has a clear focus on the development and use of mental maths strategies. At Winton Primary School we have devised Mental Maths Challenges from Year 2 upwards to enable our pupils to meet the new expectations and become Maths Champions!

Each week children will be set a 5 minute Mental Maths Challenge that focusses on the skills they need to learn. The children will move through the levels from Professional to World Champion!

We have developed a clear progression of Mental Maths strategies and skills from Year 2 upwards. Click on the links for practise papers:

There is a display in each classroom of the different levels of achievement with the corresponding certificate that is awarded. Children have their name on their level of achievement and will move through the certificates as they progress. Winton Champion and World Champion certificates are awarded in assembly.

With your support at home we hope that the children will rise to the challenge and all reach World Champion in no time!

Useful Links

We make a lot of use of online maths games and activities in school.  As well as Sumdog, for which your child's teacher should have assigned him/her unique log in details, some of the other links below are our most popular. Why not try some of them out and let us know what you think…?

Why should I play maths games with my child?

Children make progress best as mathematicians when they regularly repeat skills and practise them until they become embedded.  This can be quite a long process sometimes, and so the use of the context of an exciting game or interesting activity can be highly motivating.  In our experience, our children learn best when they are having fun and that's what games are for.

You'll find all sorts of maths content here, all presented as engaging games and challenges.

Maths Support for Parents

The Oxford University Press have developed this site to support parents in helping their children with mathematics. You'll find lots of advice and support, games and activity ideas for how best to help your child develop as a mathematician. There's also information on what is taught in primary school maths lessons, and what some of the 'jargon' means!
