Four Nations Mathletics Challenge!


The pupils at Hovingham Primary from Year 2 – Year 6 all love using Mathletics. We have now used the site for just over 2 years and the impact is really showing. Our results are getting better – but more importantly their is a real buzz in Maths classes and the children are so much more confident  – not only about Maths – but this confidence has had a knock on effect on the rest of their learning.

3P Learning who provide Mathletics also do a spelling site – which the children can link too from Mathletics – so now we are starting to use that too to boost their spelling!

There is no doubt that computers engage and motivate children to learn – the Internet drives learning in the 21st Century.  At Hovingham we use the computer suite for Mathletics clubs every day – at breakfast time, lunchtimes and after school. The clubs are full to capacity – and the computers are old and slow.

Pupils at Hovingham are all competing in the Four Nations Challenge. We have two goals –

  • We are all going to do our very best, and we are aiming very high. We want to get winning scores, to help England win! We would really like to represent England on World Maths Day – that would make us feel so proud of our achievements and our school and community. 
  • We are doing the Four Nations Challenge as a sponsored event – and the money raised will towards getting more computer access for pupils in school. We would be able to increase the numbers of children attending the clubs and pupils would be able to use the computers in their classes. We know that this would help to raise progress and achievement. 

Please support Hovingham Primary raise funds for computers –

you can donate a set amount or sponsor us at £/p per 1000 points of our total score.

Next weekend i will blog about how the event goes at school and how our fund raising is proceeding!
