You are expected to spend at least 20 minutes a week completing Maths questions and problems on RM Easimaths. You will use your log in you have always used and were sent again in March during lockdown.
The longer time you spend on RM Easimaths the greater chance your class will have of winning a prize at the end of the half term!
