How can I help my child at home?
Class teachers usually provide parents with information on what they can do to help with Maths at home, through newsletters or on the class webpage.
In addition, parents can help with Maths by:
• Overseeing homework
• Cooking with your child- weigh out/ measure ingredients, looking at the scales on measuring equipment
• Playing games with your child such as snakes and ladders, Yahtzee, cards, monopoly etc.
Helping your child to learn:
• Number bonds (addition and subtraction facts for numbers to 10, then for 20 and 100)
• Multiplication and division facts (by the end of Year 4, children should know all of their x tables)
• The names of 2D and 3D shapes and their properties – what shapes can you find in and around your house?
• Facts about measures – how many grams make a kilogram, metres make a kilometre, millilitres make a litre?
