I’m delighted to inform you about a new service we’re using to support your child’s maths education that has been provided free by Numbots during the school closure.

The creators of Times Tables Rock Stars have produced a platform for boosting addition and subtraction skills, called NumBots. Big Difference NumBots is an online game which can be played online at or downloaded from the app store.

Playing little and often will significantly improve your child’s recall and understanding of number bonds and addition and subtraction facts.

The children will login using the same login details as for Times Tables Rockstars. (Reminder logins have been sent home with your child).

Little and often is the way to get the best out of NumBots, so please encourage your child to play for 5 minutes each day (or more!)

Game Types

1. Story Mode – the emphasis is on learning the ideas and concepts behind addition and subtraction so it features more diagrams, shapes and question styles.

2. Challenge Mode – the emphasis is more on speed of recall of key facts, like number bonds to 10, doubling small numbers or adding & taking away in your head.

We hope you enjoy playing Numbots!
