We would like to share a new app which is an excellent, interactive tool to help your child with their maths learning.
1-Minute Maths is a free app (available for Apple/iOS, Android and Kindle) designed to help KS1 children build greater number confidence and fluency. It’s all about targeted practice, focusing on addition, subtraction and ‘Subitising’ in engaging, one-minute chunks!
There’s no specific route or starting point; children choose a topic then answer a series of randomly generated questions, which are marked immediately. When one minute is up, questions are automatically presented on a breakdown screen, giving instant feedback on how children have done. There is also a useful ‘Hint’ button to provide support for any children who experience difficulty with a question.
This is a fantastic and accessible tool for children to use at home to build both fluency and confidence, while having fun with basic number. Just one minute a day can help! Follow this link to find out more and download the app.
If we can help in any way please do not hesitate to speak to a member of staff or contact school by e-mailing the school office firstname.lastname@example.org
