KS1 Online Resources
At Round Hill, we subscribe to a number of fantastic online resources. These resources are used to engage and enthuse the children, as well as enhancing learning, both at home and school.
Bug Club Reading Programme
Bug Club is our core reading program to help children develop into confident and motivated readers. It combines over 500 finely levelled books with interactive eBooks and an online reading world. We allocate books every week to individual pupils for home reading. Click on the Bug Club Reading Programme link on the right hand side of the page for more information.
The teachers will set weekly homework tasks using the MyMaths resource for children in Year 1 and Year 2. We would highly recommend that your child completes these tasks as it will consolidate the learning taking place in school. There are also lots of other activities that your child can complete in their own time. There is a MyMaths guide going home to both Year 1 and Year 2 parents which provides more information about the website. Please note that your child’s MyMaths username and password can be found in the guide as well as at the front of your child's Reading Record. More information about MyMaths can be found in the link on the right hand side of the page.
NumBots / Times Table Rock Stars (TTRS)
The NumBots resource is available for Year 1 and Year 2 and it is fantastic for developing the children’s number skills. At this time, we are only encouraging the Year 2 children to use the Times Table Rock Star resource as this focuses on developing the children’s recall of the times tables. There is a TTRS guide going home to all Year 2 parents which provides more details about the website. Please note that your child’s username and password details can be found at the front of your child’s Reading Record. More information about Times Table Rock Stars can be found in the link on the right hand side of the page.
Purple Mash is a creative online space which hosts an exciting mixture of curriculum focused activities, programs and games to support and inspire creative learning. Your child can access a variety of activities using their Purple Mash log in details, which can be found at the front of your child’s reading record. In year 5 / 6, Purple Mash is mainly used to support the Computing curriculum in school.
