Sumdog & Times Tables Rockstars
Maths Online Learning at Squirrels Heath
At Squirrels Heath, we use two main online programmes to support children’s learning; Sumdog and Times Tables Rockstars.
Sumdog is an online programme which supports all aspects of Mathematical learning. It provided activities from Reception to Year 7, and so caters for all children within our setting. It uses performance analysis and adapts to each individual, using engaging game-based learning to motivate and build confidence.
Children are allocated work to reinforce concepts from previous years where necessary, from their current year and it can also provide additional challenge where children show they are ready. Teachers can also set tailored work for children, based on particular topics. The learning engine can also provide reports for teachers at a Year group, class and individual level.
The programme also runs regular contests to encourage children to challenge themselves both individually and within a class team. Certificates may be earned and given out to children in recognition of their hard work and achievements.

Times Tables Rockstars
Times Tables Rockstars is a programme to help children learn their times tables, as it is vital they do so. Both in paper form (in school) and online (at home), Times Tables Rock Stars is a carefully sequenced programme of daily times tables practice.
Each week concentrates on a different times table, with a recommended consolidation week for rehearsing the tables that have recently been practised every third week or so.
