Nintendo DS at Cathedral Primary School

Our P7 pupils took great delight in being able to borrow the Nintendo DS consoles again.  They all responded positively to them and all felt that their mental agility had improved as a result.  They all felt that they could add and multiply much quicker as a result of using them.

‘Our favourite game was Low and High.  We liked that it timed us – it made us work faster.’

‘We really like the Times Table game.  It really helped us with our times tables.’

‘This is our favourite type of active maths!’

These boys said ‘We really liked using the nintendos, they helped with our mental calculations.’
