Maths Curriculum Celebration

We love celebrating Maths at Chesswood — both from a high achievement perspective and a love and awareness of the subject in our every day lives.  On this page you will find information about whole school celebrations and photos & videos about what's going well in Maths currently.

PRIMARY MATHS CHALLENGE - NOVEMBER 2022

Congratulations to the 39 Bright Sparks from Years 5 and 6 who participated in this year's Primary Maths Challenge in November.  Children were selected based on their amazing test performance in the summer term of the previous school year.  During the challenge, they needed to complete 25 increasingly challenging Maths problems.  All of the children showed a tremendous attitude and put in a super effort which resulted in some very high scores!  Children in Year 6 have been awarded their certificates, whilst children in Year 5 will receive their certificates in assembly this week.  Children have been awarded either a bronze, silver or gold award certificate depending on how high their score was.  An extra special congratulations to our gold award winners - Ming-Kai from 5JS, Jithaesh from 5JS, Jakub from 6RW, Alana from 6SJ, Benjamin from 6NB and Ava from 6NB.

GUIDANCE

For Maths Week England we want to make maths exciting and high profile in our school. We will be taking part in a friendly competition involving schools from England from Monday 14th November to Wednesday 16th November. It’s all done online via play.ttrockstars.com.

For every correct answer to a multiplication or division question, your child will earn their class a point. The Times Tables Rock Stars platform will calculate the class average (the number of correct answers per pupil in the class who play during the competition hours, subject to a daily 60-minute limit (see below)). Winning classes in the school and in the competition as a whole will be the ones with the highest average. 

All game modes (Gig, Garage, Studio, etc.) will count but only from games played between 7:30AM GMT and 7:30PM GMT on Monday 14th, Tuesday 15th and Wednesday 16th November. To support player wellbeing, there is a daily time limit of 60 minutes per player. In other words, each player can earn competition points for up to 60 minutes between 7.30am and 7.30pm. Once the player goes beyond 60 minutes of play on a given day, they will still earn coins but will no longer earn points towards the competition.

In the spirit of the competition, please don’t play on their behalf but by all means encourage and support them to the extent that it doesn’t cause high stress levels or impact on family plans. We suggest a limit of half an hour a day outside school hours – some will play more, some will play less.

We will be recognising the top scoring child in each class with a £5 Amazon Gift Voucher - whilst the highest scoring child in each year group will win an additional £5 voucher.

TT Rock Stars is a fun way for children to learn and become more confident with multiplication and division facts.  If you have any doubt about which of the games on TT would be best for your child to use during the competition, please check the weekly year group Maths Fluency homework first.  If you are still unsure, we would recommend the following, but please do speak with your child's teacher if you want any further clarification:

Year 3 - Garage or Jamming

Year 4 - Garage, Studio or Soundcheck

Years 5 and 6 - Garage, Studio, Festival, Arena or Rockslam.

For more details on each game mode, please click on the image below.
