At Red Rose Primary School we use a variety of online curriculum support activities. These cover a range of literacy, numeracy and ICT activities. As the pupils are required or encouraged to use them, they will be given instructions on how to get the best out of the online activities. Some of these will be additional to their curriculum, but sometimes it will be part of their work or homework. As always with IT provision, pupils who are unable to access the internet at home or on devices will be able to use computers during break, lunch or after-school (at homework club). As these activities are all ‘web-based’, they can be easily access from computers, tablets and often even smart-phones. For more information on this, including access at school, please contact your child’s teacher or the office.
Our most recent online activity is Numbots.
The creators of Times Tables Rock Stars have produced Numbots for boosting addition and subtraction skills. Numbots is an online game playable at play.numbots.com or through the NumBots app. It is aimed at boosting addition and subtraction skills and when played little and often, will significantly improve your child’s recall and understanding of number bonds and addition and subtraction facts. These are critical foundations in maths so we are excited by the impact NumBots will have. Here is a parents’ guide. Also, here is some help on the tasks that the pupls will be asked to do.
Different Key Stages will use a slightly different mix of online activities. To access the programmes, choose the correct key stage and then select the programme you wish to use.
If you are worried about anything you see online or people are asking you questions about where you live or saying nasty things to you please speak to your parents or teacher. If you would like to report anything that you are worried about online, please click on the image.
