## Practice, Repeat & Refine

The Ninja Maths ethos is Practice, Repeat & Refine…

### Practice

It is very important for a child to practice maths ideally every day. Even during a holiday a ninja will exercise to keep their muscles and movements fast and nimble.

### Repeat

A child should solve maths problems over and over again until it becomes second nature. For example example fractions: multiply, divide, add and subtract until it becomes easy.

A ninja does not learn a kick then hope to remember it for future use. Once learnt, a ninja will repeat that kick over and over again until it becomes second nature.

### Refine

A child should aim to improve their maths & moves each time they repeat a type of question. For example, refining how they articulate their working out to get all the marks.

A ninja does not tolerate a sloppy kick. Once learnt, a ninja will seek to refine even the smallest of details.

## A Recent Review…

Ninja Maths worksheets are interesting and engaging resources that provide a perfect blend of consolidation, practice and challenge with a high-interest level.

Teachers can use these useful and robust worksheets as a snapshot of pupil learning but also as assessment tools to provide evidence of pupil achievement and attainment.

I use them as class activities and, especially, as differentiated activities for 2 high-attaining pupils in my class who seek and thrive on extra pace and challenge. They love them!

### 1. Fluency in Maths

A child should become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics. This is encouraged through varied and frequent practice – which is the cornerstone of Ninja Maths. A child should be able to solve increasingly complex problems throughout Primary school, and exhibit understanding of key concepts.

### 2. Mathematical Reasoning

Mathematical reasoning includes being able follow lines of thought, and to identify generalisations – e.g. how multiplication can be used across integers, fractions, and decimals. A child should also become fluent in the language of mathematics.

### 3. Solving Problems

A child should use their growing knowledge-base to solve problems using a variety of skills. This includes breaking down problems into a series of smaller steps to solve a larger problem
