Some parents and carers have asked if we can provide some website links and helpful hints to support your child in learning maths in home. So here we are!
This page will continue to be developed over the next year. (If you have any helpful hints of your own that you would like to add, please see a member of school staff.)
This is a useful book which gives ideas for parents and carers to use with their children at home. It explains some of the 'new' ways of teaching some mathematical concepts, so that you can help your child to learn.
Maths for mums and dads
Review: Maths for Mums and Dads guides you through the basics of primary school maths and covers the dilemmas and problems you are likely to be confronted with, including:
* number bonds, place value and decimals
* long multiplication and long division
* percentages, ratios and fractions
* basic geometry, shapes, symmetry and angles
* Data-handling, combinations and chance
Complete with sample questions, mock exam papers and examples of children's errors, Maths for Mums and Dads will challenge and reassure in equal measure.
Here are a few useful links to websites that offer help to parents and carers with maths.
The following is a link to a newspaper article published earlier this year reporting on why parents struggle to help children with their maths homework.
