Top 10s

FRIDAY 3RD JULY

Congratulations on those of you that have made the Top 10s this week.  I've changed how they appear on the page now.  The preview image shows you what the Top 10 is for, when you click on it, it will reveal the names in the Top 10.  I've also put some tips on how to get into the top 10 as I know there are so many that you might be unsure!  Remember, all Top 10s run from Friday to Thursday - except when it's the last day of term.

ACCELERATED READER

To appear in these top 10s, try reading for 20-30 minutes 5 times a week.  If you do this, you should finish at least one book a week (although sometimes books will take longer).  This will help you to appear in all 4 Top 10s.  Sometimes you may wish to read a few shorter books, this will help you to appear in the Quizzes top 10 in particular, but may not help you as much as a longer book for the other top 10s.  It's a good idea to check that your book is on AR before you start reading it - you can do this using the AR Book Finder.

DUOLINGO

To appear in these top 10s, try using Duolingo for 10 minutes 5 times a week.  Each time you attempt an activity, you earn XP, which is what gets you into these top 10s.  If you're unsure about your login details, please ask.

IXL

To appear in these top 10s, try completing the suggested IXL activities on the Daily Learning.  If you have already completed these, you are welcome to attempt other IXL activities.  If you need help choosing, please ask.  Whilst it's great to master the activities on here, you don't have to master them to be in these top 10s - these are about how much time you spend on here.  Some of you will be able to master lots of activities in the same amount of time as it takes another person to get a few questions right because they needed to work hard at working out the answer - that's okay - you just need to do your best!  Please make sure you are logged in and not using IXL as a guest so that your hard work counts!

TT ROCK STARS

To appear in these top 10s, try using TT Rock Stars for 10 minutes, 5 times a week.  The Accuracy and Speed Top 10s require you to use Studio.  This will test you on each of the times tables so may be harder but you just need to try your best.  It's a good idea to play Studio 10 times per week as this will make sure your speed is updated - if you only play 1 or 2 Studio games, even if you get lots right, this may not show in your speed on the top 10s because they use something called an average based on your last 10 goes.  To qualify for the Earners top 10 - the best way is to just make sure you practise on the other days using Garage or the Auto Training Mode as these will give you more coins for correct answers.  There may well be a lot of repeated questions but this is help you make sure you definitely know these facts.  You can change the length of Garage to 3 minutes per session to give you longer to practise.
