Maths '99' Club
This term will see the launch of Portreath School’s 99 club. 99 club has been developed to help further raise standards in Numeracy by encouraging pupils to improve their mental maths and therefore increase the speed and confidence they tackle mental maths problems in Numeracy sessions, across the curriculum and in day to day life.
All pupils have one opportunity per week to complete the next level, this will be timetabled by the teacher. All pupils involved are encouraged to have a go each week but are allowed to opt for a practise sheet rather than an assessment for a maximum of 3 weeks – this is to keep pupils enthused and wanting to gain the next badge. All pupils start on 11 club and work their way up. The 11 club is so called because there are 11 questions to answer, the 22 club has 22 and so on. Badges are awarded when all questions in that “club” are answered correctly in the time given. Badges will be awarded in Friday celebration assemblies. When the children move onto the next level they will need to hand their old badge back. Lost badges will be replaced for 50p.
