Maths and Literacy Programmes

MyMaths

All Key Stage 3 & 4 students as well as anyone studying Maths in the 6th form has been registered withMyMaths.co.uk. This should help them to structure their maths work and enable you to see how they are progressing. At Key stages 3 &4 homework is set on MyMaths once per fortnight.

To get to the materials you first need to log on to the site.
Go to www.mymaths.co.uk and login at the top of the homepage.

On the next page your child should enter their private login and password in the pink ‘My Portal’ box. MyMaths.co.uk will then remember who they are and automatically log them in to the tasks. If your child has forgotten their password please contact their maths teacher (via the Enquiries email address)

Each of the lessons in the library has an Online Homework. Your child will be directed to do these tasks by their teacher. If they have been set a task by their teacher the task will appear under MyTasks. They must complete both pages of the Online Homework for the scores to be saved to the database. Other activities may also appear under MyActivities. If no lessons are appearing then you have a Pop-Up Blocker installed. You MUST allow to use Pop-Ups.

You can see all their results by clicking MyResults and track their results by Level by clicking MyLevels. There is a system of Traffic Lights for each of the Tasks to indicate how successful your child has been.

If a green light appears next to a topic, they have good skills in this area.
If an amber light appears they still have difficulties.
If a red light appears they need to go back and relearn the topic. Try the lesson again or get them to ask their teacher for help.

It will also tell you which questions your child could and couldn’t do, how many times they have attempted the worksheet and when they last tried it.

You can also find tasks and lessons using the MyMaths.co.uk library. Click Library on the left of the screen and you will see Number, Algebra, Shape and Data appear. Click on one of these titles, select a topic and click an activity. The level of the lesson is shown as a pink number on the list. You will have the option to complete a lesson or an Online Homework. Only Online Homework tasks are recorded. You can help your child by encouraging them to visit the library and work through the lessons at their level. If you have time, you might want to work through some of the topics with them. The lessons are clear and easy to follow.

An effective strategy is to pretend that you have forgotten how to do it and ask them to show you how. Putting them in the position of “teacher” is good for their confidence and gets them to talk about their thinking.

We are here to support you to support your child’s learning. Please contact if you have any more questions.

Finally, please be aware that if you login with your child’s details then anything you do will appear on their score sheet. Don’t just go in and play as you may create results which your child’s teacher will think are theirs! 

 

Accelerated Reader Literacy Programme

At the beginning of each term students take an online reading test to assess their current reading level as well as their progress from the previous term.  Pupils choose and read a book which is within their assigned reading level, then go online and take an Accelerated Reader quiz on the book.  Students are given time during English and Advisory classes both to read and take quizzes and once a fortnight, each student has a meeting with their co-advisor to assess their progress and allocate rewards.

In the Spring term, we will offer additional workshop(s) that will take you through an online quiz and show you how to access your child’s record from home using the Home Connect website so that you can monitor their progress yourself. https://ukhosted12.renlearn.co.uk/1894552/HomeConnect/
