Times Tables Rockstars!
We are all Times Tables Rockstars at St Aloysius! Log on and play for 10 minutes every night to try and become a Rock Hero! Children will play in school and online at home to earn coins for their rock alter-ego. The more you practice, the faster you will progress. Our aim is for all children to become ‘rock stars’ by the end of Year 4.
Each week, Miss Wrigley will set the whole school a challenge. At the moment, the children are trying to knock the teachers out of the top 10 but there are still two teachers in there! Can you knock them off the charts?

We try to operate same day intervention in maths at St Aloysius. If a child has a misconception or has missed a lesson we always try to solve these issues before the next lesson. That could be a conversation with the teacher, a small group task or even 1:1 support from a teaching assistant.
At the start of each unit in maths, teachers will look at the pre-requisite learning required for children to access new concepts and learning. This usually consists of a revisit of 1-2 lessons from the previous year’s curriculum, ensuring that all children can access the maths learning. If there are further gaps identified, the teacher will carefully plan lessons to close these gaps before the children continue.
Teachers use strengethening activities within lessons to support any child who might need extra practice, while there are deepening activities to stretch those who grasp concepts more rapidly.
