Ninja Maths

 Ninja Maths gives our pupils the opportunity to rapidly recall multiplication facts out of sequence, answer multiplication questions in a written format and practise and learn number bonds. 


To move to the next band, pupils must achieve 54 out of 56 in 2 minutes on both multiplication and number bonds. These pupils are then tested by the ‘Question Masters’ (pupils from any year group who have achieved the black band or above) in front of the whole school in our Ninja Maths assemblies. Only after the ‘Question Master’s’ questions have been answered correctly will they be awarded their coloured band.
