As part of our commitment to make maths exciting and high profile in our school, this November we are taking part in a competition for Maths Week England. It’s called Rock Out 2020 and it’s all done online via play.ttrockstars.com.
For every correct answer to a multiplication or division question, your child will earn their class a point. The Times Tables Rock Stars platform will calculate the class average (the number of correct answers per pupil in the class who play during the competition hours). Winning classes in the school and in the country as a whole will be the ones with the highest average.
All game modes (Gig, Garage, Studio, etc.) will count but only from games played between 7.30am and 7.30pm on Monday 9th, Tuesday 10th, Wednesday 11th, Thursday 12th, Friday 13th and Saturday 14th.
In the spirit of the competition, please don’t play on their behalf but by all means encourage and support them to the extent that it doesn’t cause high stress levels or impact on family plans. We suggest a limit of half an hour a day outside school hours – some will play more, some will play less.
Thanks for your support and Rock out!
Meet our online safety ambassadors.
They will be keeping you all up to date with the SMART rules and some top tips on how to keep children safe online.
If you have any further questions please speak to a member of staff.
Playground Friends is a project that was introduced by Stockton Council. It is aimed at enhancing positive, co-operative play in schools and encouraging less confident children to interact with their peers. At Myton Park, we recognise that our role is to develop the education of the whole child. Through our Playground Friends scheme we provide opportunities for:
Thinking skills – Good manners
Physical skills – Physical exercise
Social skills – Co-operation
The Playground Friends teach games and rhymes and wear special caps for ease of identification. They choose younger children to receive recognition awards in our celebration assembly. The outcomes for developing this scheme include:
Improved caring attitudes
Improved sense of responsibility
Improved peer relationships
Improved physical skills
A happier environment
A decrease in bullying
Year 5 children are given the option of becoming Playground Friends. They play an important role in school supporting our younger pupils.
