What a fantastic model of how to approach Hegarty Maths extended study. Kiera has been using bar models to check her thinking and discussing her extended study with her dad. Great work!
Students in X25 Admiral have been given instructions on how to log into hegartymaths.com
They need to put in their first name, surname and then their date of birth. They will then be asked to set a password.
Once they have logged in, they will see that I have set them three exercises. To get the most out of Hegarty Maths, students should:
- Watch the accompanying video for each exercise
- Have a pencil and paper handy to make notes and do working out
- Send messages to me when they do not understand a question
The tasks that have been set are some of the earlier set of skills around addition and subtraction. There are over 800 skills in total which take students right up to GCSE level. At the moment we are still getting baseline information on where students are at in terms of prior knowledge but in the coming weeks, increasingly I will set personalised sets of questions to make sure that all students are challenged.
The deadline for completion of these three activities is for the morning of Tuesday 25th September.
(X25 Skipper will have this extended study task set tomorrow)
Dear parents and families
Students have now been introduced to ttrockstars.com . This is a fantastic online website dedicated to making times tables practice fun. Students can play competitively against each other or do some solo training.
Each week we ask students to earn at least 1000 coins.
Students have written down their usernames and passwords but please do email me if you would like a copy of their login details. (email@example.com)
With this being students’ first week, the deadline to earn 1000 points is Friday 21st September. Students earn points more quickly if they play in the garage solo.
All Year 7 students have 6 tasks set for Hegarty Maths on percentages.
Students should watch the video and make notes for each exercise before starting the questions.
The deadline is Tuesday 5th June at 8pm, so if students are having any problems they can email me, contact me through google classroom, come and see me on the Monday 4th June or stay for extended study after school on Monday 4th or Tuesday 5th June.
All year 7 students have been set some exercises on Hegarty Maths on data handling.
For each exercise they should watch the video first, then attempt the questions.
There are 5 exercises in total on mode, mean, median and range.
The deadline is Tuesday next week at 8pm.
This term we are looking at the efficiency of energy transfers as part of our expedition “Where is away?”. An important part of this is being able to work out and interpret efficiency when expressed as a percentage.
All Year 7 students have been set 3 MyMaths exercises as a baseline to test their knowledge of working out percentages of amounts.
If students are stuck they can:
- Watch the videos linked here: https://corbettmaths.com/2013/02/15/percentages-of-an-amount-calculator/
- Click on the lesson in MyMaths before trying the online homework.
- Email me through google classroom.
The deadline is Monday evening at 8pm.

We will check each week at 8pm on a Friday.
To earn points quickest, students should play in the garage. This week it is 2s and 3s.
To bring down their average time, students should play in the studio.
To have most fun, students should play in the rock arena against their friends, or rock festival where they play against the world!
