Ways to support your child at home

My maths home learning

My maths home learning (although not required to be completed) is a fantastic way to explore what we have been learning!  MyMaths is an interactive online teaching and homework website that will help support your child’s skills, confidence and fluency in maths through lessons, homework tasks, and games.

 

Maths

The best way to support your child at home in Maths is to practise number bonds (quick mental addition and subtraction) and times tables - these provide a fantastic foundation for all areas of maths learning and is something practise regularly in order to keep up these skills.

 

Any time you are able to make maths 'real' for children is brilliant - please involve them any time you are reading scales (such as weighing in cooking), using money to pay at a till, and recognising numbers around them. Children need to see that maths is not just something they do at school! Checking weights of products in shops and the capacity of certain containers is also a great way to learn concepts such as mass and measures.
