Maths at Meath Green Junior School
At Meath Green Junior School, we recognise the importance of ensuring our children develop a sound mathematical understanding and skill set. The teaching of mathematics is integral to all aspects of life and with this in mind we endeavor to ensure that children also develop a positive and enthusiastic attitude towards mathematics that will stay with them and the confidence to draw on the skills learnt later on in life.
Times table competition!
Meath Green Junior School will be holding a times table competition to find the school’s quickest, most accurate multiplication star! Do you have what it takes?
The competition will have three rounds. All those wanting to take part will complete a times table grid in class on Friday 10th May. The 3 quickest, most accurate children from each class will then be taken through to the next round.
At this stage (6th June) the competitors will complete a further grid where the top three will then progress to the final! (Please note, we will also make special recognition of the quickest score from each year group, even if they do not make it through to the final round.)
The final will be held on the 14th June, where we will present our winner’s trophy!
Progress will be reported on the school website.
Please find below helpful resources that might help you to prepare for the competition.
Meath Green Junior School have started a new initiative called Maths Passports.
Maths Passports are a fun and creative way to develop your child’s capabilities to solve mental calculations with increasing ease and speed. We believe that these skills are at the very core of maths. The passports are designed to cover a range of skills and provide progression throughout. Once your child has demonstrated their ability to complete the targets on their passport, they will move onto a new passport with new targets. The children learn strategies that help them achieve their targets, which they practice in class. We then hope to see them transfer this knowledge into other areas of maths.
Please use the PowerPoint below to inform you of the targets that child needs to achieve before moving onto their next passport
