At St James's children have the opportunity to work their way through our Pirate Awards from Year 1 upwards. Pupils need to learn their multiplication facts thoroughly so they can instantly recall.
In each class pupils regularly have the chance to apply this knowledge, answering a number of multiplication and other mental maths skill questions in a given time. Once pupils score 100% they have achieved that award and move on to the next.
Certificates for each award are presented in our Praise assemblies and certain awards have special prizes such as a treat from our school treasure chest, golden pin badges and even a non-school uniform day just for you!
