Practise maths skills at home

The children have each been given a login to a Maths activity website called Sumdog which has maths games aimed at improving their speed and accuracy in mental maths. To access this at home please visit: www.sumdog.com.

Their usernames are their first name, beginning with a capital letter, followed by the first letter of their surname (also a capital letter); their password is cat and the school code is nashmills.

e.g. Username: BenD

       Password:  cat

       School code: nashmills

 

Please note that the activities are tailored to each child's abilities according to their results, so if older siblings use the same log-in , it will affect the questions asked.
