  • Maths homework in curriculum year 2017/18 will take the form of a scheme called 'Big Maths Beat That!' This helps the children with quick recall of number facts. The children will have a quick test which takes around 5 minutes on a Monday and then take the same test on a Friday. They can practice the questions they answer incorrectly by taking the paper home and getting help from parents and guardians. Some children will accurately answer all the questions correctly so they aim to achieve quicker times each week they sit the paper.  The scheme runs for 10 weeks and can be rerun to increase accuracy and speed. Big Maths Beat That! was trialled in year 3 last year and is being successfully used in other schools in Tunbridge Wells.  As the children are not used to the timings of these tests, class teachers are giving them as much time as they need to start with and then the time will be reduced as they get used to them.  Please note MyMaths will no longer be used and logins have now stopped working.
