Westbury on Trym C of E Academy Mathematics Badges

 

 

To continue the development of Mathematics in our school, we have decided to implement a Mathematics badges incentive scheme. The focus of this scheme is to improve and consolidate all the children’s mental recall and use of number and times tables facts, at speed. We believe that this will then support children’s confidence and ability to apply these skills when they are completing calculations and problems in mathematics and other areas of the curriculum. 

Once the children have completed this test in the desired time and with no incorrect answers they will be moved onto the next stage. The children will stay on their badge colour until they have achieved all the correct answers and in the time given.  The children will then be given the colour badge to keep and a certificate in recognition of their achievement!  Every now and again we will check that they are still able to retain the number facts learned from an earlier badge within the allocated time frame. Once a week the children will aim to practice and/or attempt to complete a test for that relevant badge in a given time. Please find the links below for each badge. 

For more information- see the badges overview.

Please note badge times are 4 minutes and 4.5 minutes for star badges.
