What is the 99 club?
99 club has been developed to help raise standards in Numeracy by encouraging pupils to improve their mental maths and therefore increase the speed and confidence they tackle mental maths problems in Numeracy sessions, across the curriculum and in day to day life.
All pupils have an opportunity several times each term to complete the next level.. All pupils are encouraged to learn their calculations each week in order to earn their next band at the next test opportunity. Pupils start on the club selected by their class teacher and work their way up. In order to progress children must score 100 per cent within the time restrictions.
Parents may wish to give this a go also...if you dare!
Pupils are allowed TEN MINUTES ONLY to complete each test.
