Dear Parents, 

There is a free, new app from White Rose Maths Hub available for children to use.  White Rose Maths is 'influenced, inspired and informed by the work of leading maths researchers and practitioners across the world'.  The app is aimed at KS1, so you may want to download it to help your child enjoy and understand maths.

Who’s it for?

This first version of the app is aimed at Key Stage 1 pupils, and focuses on adding and subtracting – and on ‘Subitising’. The free mobile app is available for Apple/iOS, Android and Kindle. 

How does it work?

1-Minute Maths offers children engaging and easily accessible practice in basic number. There’s no specific route or starting point. Having chosen a topic, each user answers a series of randomly generated questions (a different set of questions every time means they learn the concept, not a sequence of answers).

When the one minute’s up, the questions are automatically marked and presented on a breakdown screen, giving instant feedback on how they’ve done. If they’re struggling with a question, a ‘Hint’ button reformats the question as a familiar manipulative display that mirrors the approaches used in the White Rose Maths schemes of learning.

More information can be found here:

Great for home & school use!. Although we hope you’ll enjoy using 1-Minute Maths in class, we believe that it’s also a fantastic and accessible tool for children to use outside the school day, too.
Many thanks,
Mr Baker
