As the COVID-19 outbreak continues to spread worldwide, we want to do our bit to ensure that teachers and students stay connected and children continue their learning at home with minimum disruption.

 

We are offering affected schools free full access to NumBots– our platform that tackles addition,
subtraction and number bonds – throughout any school closure*.

 

To activate your free access, please sign up for a trial below. No payment details are required. NumBots is entirely pupil led, easily accessible for pupils to play from home via the free app or browser and allows teachers to follow and praise progress.


Parents, Carers, Home Educators and Tutors

Our free access offer is available to schools only, and does not apply to family or tutor subscriptions. If your children/pupils go to a school that has been affected by the Covid-19 outbreak, please do feel free to pass on this offer to their school teacher to take up if they wish. Please note that only authorised school personnel should sign up to this offer. Family and Tutor subscriptions are not yet available on NumBots. Please watch this space and we will let you know when they become available.


*Free full access is available to schools (who do not currently have a subscription) who are forced to close due to Covid-19, for up to a maximum of 60 days. If your school is closed for a longer period, please do contact us at [email protected].

Here are our top 3 tips for using NumBots in the event of a school closure:

  1. Ensure that all pupils have been uploaded to NumBots and can access NumBots from home – here is a handy reminder on how to upload users, print out usernames labels and how to download our parent letters.
  2. Set goals for weekly practice (e.g. pass 30 levels a week). It’s clear to pupils what they need to do and you can see their efforts.
  3. Follow your students progress using our Stats page – you can easily monitor effort and progress, by seeing who has played, how long for and how many levels they have passed, over a custom time period (e.g. last 7 days).
 

FREE access to Times Tables Rock Stars!

We are also offering affected schools free full access to Times Tables Rock Stars – our sister platform for multiplication and division – throughout any school closure*. Please sign up for a trial on ttrockstars.com. Again, no payment details are required. TT Rock Stars is easily accessible for pupils to play from home via the free app or browser and allows teachers to set specific tasks and monitor progress.
