A regular daily learning routine will help your child to learn more effectively at home. We therefore recommend that you aim to cover just one 20-30 minute White Rose Maths session each day.
How to use these lessons:
Numbots focuses on key skills of number bonds, addition and subtraction through a number of challenge levels.
Children should aim to play in Story Mode for three minutes four to five times a week, to get the best out of NumBots. Little and often is key (spaced practice is more effective than blocked practice).
