CLIC - Maths
At Maun Infant and Nursery school, we do CLIC maths everyday with the children. CLIC stands for Counting, Learn its, It's Nothing New and Calculation. The session lasts about 20-25 mins and its a scheme to improve the children's mental arithmetic. Each week we will upload an overview of the week, which will show what learning will take place in each section. Everyday new questions will be uploaded. Each week, the children usually do a CLIC challenge and a Learn It challenge. So every Friday we will provide a Learn It style challenge. They will have to see how many they can get correct in one minute without any help. The idea is that they try to beat their own score each week. So practice the learn its throughout the week and go for the challenge on a Friday.
