Math

JUMP math

This is our pilot math program. Our school joined a pilot 5-year long program in school year 2015-16. Students will work with new resources: JUMP Math. JUMP Math is a complete package of resources and is intended to cover the curricula for Grades 1 to 8.
JUMP Math is a numeracy program. JUMP Math is dedicated to enhancing the potential in children by encouraging an understanding and a love of math in students and educators. JUMP Math replaces the self-fulfilling myth that some people are born with mathematical ability while others do not have the ability to succeed with assumptions that all children can be led to think mathematically.

BBC Dance Mat typing training

It is a fun way to learn touch typing.
There are four levels to play, each divided into three stages.
You start by learning the home row keys. Each stage builds on previous lessons, introducing new letters as you progress. You’ll soon be touch typing like an expert! At the end of each level you can test your typing speed and get a fun reward.
