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)
Really enjoyed playing this game and became quite competitive! We’d like more games like this in future for homework!
(Parent, Year 2)
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)
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 )
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 particularly enjoyed being able to put the numbers in my columns to prevent me from winning the round!
(Parent, Year 1)
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)
Love playing them, they're really cool.
(Vinnie, Year 6 pupil)
When I play them, I tend to forget that they're homework!
(Rebecca, Year 6 pupil)
They're really good - I wish I had these before.
(Jawad Louira, Year 6 Teacher)
We like Dig's questions and challenges in addition to playing the game. The tips section was also useful.
He was very determined to ensure he had the best numbers, we will be playing often.
I liked how easily the games could be prepared, simple layout, instructions etc... re-usability was also a big plus.
(Teacher, Year 5)
She had a great time playing with family members and was keen to do her homework.
Really fun 'cos it's a really cool way to learn maths.
(Reggie, Year 6 pupil)
Love the games - they are so easy to organise.
(Dawn Cordell, Year 6 Teacher)
We love the games for homework - and the kids love them too! Hassle free and a worthwhile activity!
(Rhian Martin, Year 6 Teacher)
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)
