Times Tables Success
In the 7 weeks since the app was re-launched for this academic year, students in Years 7 and 8 have used the PiXL app to practise their times tables. They have answered over 235000 questions and the College has achieved 1st place in the national PiXL league table three times. This is the 3rd year the college has used the app to help students to improve their numeracy skills. Students compete to top the student and form group league table each week. Mrs McDonald, who has responsibility for maths enrichment at the college, describes the weekly competition amongst students and form groups as fierce and explains 'the competition has gone from strength to strength and each week we have thousands of questions answered by almost 600 students'.
