Choose which resource you would like further information on.

MyMaths

Pupils will visit the MyMaths website. They will be asked to login using their login details.

Their teacher will have set them lessons/activities to complete. When pupils login they should:

  1. Visit www.mymaths.co.uk.
  2. Enter the school username and password.
  3. The ‘Portal username’ section should appear like below. If it does not, click Portal Login in the corner. Use the pupils' individual username and password to login.
  4. The homework has been set for pupils to work through.

Click on the first one and select either ‘Try the lesson’ if you’d like to practice the skill or ‘Start homework’ to begin the homework. As pupils complete this, this is sent to teachers to view.

Times Tables Rockstars

Pupils should visit https://play.ttrockstars.com/ and login using their username and password.

School: Askern Spa Junior School

Pupils should select ‘Garage’ mode and play for up to 30 minutes a day. This website automatically introduces and tests new times tables when pupils are speedy and accurate in those already being answered.

ReadTheory

For this, pupils should visit www.readtheory.org and login using their individual logins.

This will then take them through to reading texts and varied questions. These questions are designed to let pupils practise the skills we often teach in school reading sessions. Their progress is tracked and recorded for teachers to monitor.

If this is their first time using the site, it will begin with a baseline assessment. This will be used to pitch their reading level so do not worry if this, to begin with, is too hard for pupils.
