Numbots in Year 1

blankThe children in Year 1 were very excited this week to find out about Numbots. 

Numbots is an online game ( or there is an APP) and playing little and often will help improve your child’s recall and
understanding of number bonds and addition and subtraction facts. 

There are two modes in which the children can play.
1. Story Mode – the emphasis is on learning the ideas and concepts behind addition and subtraction so it features more diagrams, shapes and question styles.
2. Challenge Mode – the emphasis is more on speed of recall of key facts, like number bonds to 10, doubling small numbers or adding & taking away in your head and is against the clock.

Children can repeat stages to earn more coins and become more confident in areas. All children start at the same point and progress through the levels as they play more and become more confident with their number facts.

Unlocking Challenges
Challenge Mode is locked for new users and is unlocked once players reach a certain level on Story Mode(towards the end of the Iron Stage).
There are 20 Challenge levels and only the first is unlocked to begin with. To unlock the next challenge, children must correctly answer 20 questions in a minute.

Please try not to give your child the answers but encourage them to solve the questions themselves, maybe with some drawings or objects. Your child has been given their log-in this week, but please email us if they go missing or if you have any questions.
