99 Club


The 99 Club is a new scheme at Staverton C of E Primary School which aims to raise standards in maths through encouraging pupils to improve their mental calculations when attempting quick-fire multiplication and division problems.


The idea is that with repeated practice, the scheme should result in increased speed and confidence when tackling mental maths problems without relying on written workings and methods.


All pupils will begin at the 11 Club and work their way up, having one opportunity every two weeks during one of their maths lessons to answer all calculations at their current level unaided and within the allotted time.


If all of the calculations are answered correctly, the child can move up to the next level!


The initial 11 Club involves eleven problems which involve doubling and halving numbers. The 14 Club then introduces times tables.

Division facts are added by the time a pupil reaches the 18 Club. By the 88 Club children are required to know all their multiplication facts.


To publicise the importance of times tables, as well as recognising effort and celebrating success with children as they progress through the 99 club, every child will be given a badge. This badge relates to a 99 club. For example if your child is in the 44 club they will have a purple badge. The children can wear their badge everyday on their school jumpers.


Every 2 weeks the children are tested on their club. If they move up a club, they will hand in their old badge and receive their new badge.


Obviously, things break and if your child’s badge breaks then it will be replaced. We will not be able to replace badges that children are losing regularly.
