What is the 99 club?
99 club has been developed to help raise standards in Numeracy by encouraging pupils to improve their mental maths and therefore increase the speed and confidence they tackle mental maths problems in Numeracy sessions, across the curriculum and in day to day life.
All pupils have one opportunity per week to complete the next level. This is done at the same time across the whole school . All pupils are encouraged to have a go each week but are allowed to opt out for a maximum of 3 weeks – this is to keep pupils enthused and wanting to gain the next badge. All pupils start on 11 club and work their way up.
We also encourage teachers, other staff and parents to have a go too. They can start taking part at 99 and only do so once the children could have reached that badge (after 9 weeks)

99 club is not designed for Foundation Stage, however, if teachers feel children are ready for it then they are given the opportunity.
Pupils are able to practise at home using practise sheets available on the website and also on website in a timed test. The order of the questions changes so it is not possible for children to simply learn the answers in a particular order.
