A Parents Guide to Bug Club
KS1 Numbots guide
Here is a reminder of how to log in and play Numbots. NumBots is an online game and playing little and often will significantly improve your child’s recall and understanding of number bonds and addition and subtraction facts. These are critical foundations in maths so we are excited by the impact NumBots will have.
There are 2 different play modes:
- Story Mode – the emphasis is on learning the ideas and concepts behind addition and subtraction, so it features more diagrams, shapes, and question styles.
- Challenge Mode – the emphasis is more on speed of recall of key facts, like number bonds to 10, doubling small numbers or adding & subtracting in your head.
You should have already received your child’s log in details from your class teacher. If you have any further questions, please contact your child’s class teacher or the school office
