Maths Whizz and Hegarty Maths
22 November 2019
It is great to see how many of our Year 7 pupils have embraced Maths Whizz and are doing above and beyond the required 45 minutes per week, they are making excellent progress.
Feedback has been received from parents who have tried to access Maths Whizz on phones and tablets without success. Maths Whizz have stated that at the moment it is not available on all platforms. Please remember that pupils do have access to computers in school at lunchtimes and at our Homework Club, which pupils can sign up for. Additional IT access is now available for Year 7 to use Maths Whizz in ICT1 at lunchtime on Wednesdays. Many thanks for your continuing support.
Please encourage your daughters to use Hegarty Maths on a regular basis. Year 8 to Year 11 are set at least one task per week for homework and should be completing additional tasks for pre-tutoring, consolidation and revision. So far this year our pupils have averaged only 2.13 hours on Hegarty which places us at 612 out of schools currently registered on the program. We can do better.
Well done to 8G/Ma1 who are currently the group with the highest usage.
If you have any questions, please speak to your child’s maths teacher who will be happy to help.
