Year 1 and Year 6 have had several 'buddy maths' sessions where Y6 have supported Y1 with the games. Next year I am running Stay and Play sessions for parents to come in and try the games so they can support children with them at home.
(Rachel Morriss, Y6 Teacher & Maths Leader)
They're really good - I wish I had these before.
(Jawad Louira, Year 6 Teacher)
The games are pitched well and it is a good idea to align the games to the objectives in the New curriculum.
(Teacher, Year 6 )
We love the games for homework - and the kids love them too! Hassle free and a worthwhile activity!
(Rhian Martin, Year 6 Teacher)
She had a great time playing with family members and was keen to do her homework.
The games were spot on. We used 3 games and the children in the year group were pleased with them. I used them as extended plenary materials as well as starters.
(Teacher, Year 4)
...she particularly enjoyed being able to put the numbers in my columns to prevent me from winning the round!
(Parent, Year 1)
I liked how easily the games could be prepared, simple layout, instructions etc... re-usability was also a big plus.
(Teacher, Year 5)
Love playing them, they're really cool.
(Vinnie, Year 6 pupil)
Love the games - they are so easy to organise.
(Dawn Cordell, Year 6 Teacher)
When I play them, I tend to forget that they're homework!
(Rebecca, Year 6 pupil)
We like Dig's questions and challenges in addition to playing the game. The tips section was also useful.
We are very happy with the Dig1t games and have set up a Dig1t games lunchtime club so that the children can use them to practise their skills. We are also using the games to support homework.
(Lisa Mercer, Deputy Head at Manorcroft Primary, Egham)
She really enjoyed this type of home learning and it really consolidated her place value learning. She would like to have this more often please!!
She was really quick at answering. So I think when kids are doing maths in a fun way, they are more efficient.
(Parent, Year 1)
He was very determined to ensure he had the best numbers, we will be playing often.
Really enjoyed playing this game and became quite competitive! We’d like more games like this in future for homework!
(Parent, Year 2)
Really fun 'cos it's a really cool way to learn maths.
(Reggie, Year 6 pupil)
