Our core text:
Each week we will have some spellings to practice, which are linked to our learning in phonics. We will also bring home a fully decodeable reading book and a reading for pleasure book to share at home.

There are two modes to Numbots: Story mode for building understanding and challenge mode to put your math skills to the test!
In Story Mode, the emphasis is on mathematical concepts and is underpinned by a mastery approach to teaching. Story Mode features visual representations, procedural variation, exposure to different calculation strategies and interleaved material all in very carefully sequenced order.
In Challenge Mode, the emphasis is on rapid responses to essential facts and simple sums, against the clock. Challenge Mode is locked for new users and is unlocked once players reach a certain level on Story Mode. It’s currently set to unlock part way through Tin stage.
