How can you help your child in Mathematics?
Here are some ways in which you can support your child in their understanding of mathematical concepts.
Firstly it is important that you know the different methods that we teach the children in mathematics. Below are our calculation policies for the different year groups and a list of Mathematical Vocabulary. These explain the methods used to teach the 4 operations. (addition, subtraction, division and multiplication).
Please see below for links to our Parent Maths Workshop pages and presentations for each school year:
Times Tables Scheme
Our times tables scheme has been written to systematically teach the times table and division facts following national curriculum objectives.
The aim of the national curriculum is for all pupils to have a secure and rapid recall of all times tables up to 12 times 12, by the end of Year 4.
Each week, pupils practice the designated times table in school and complete questions in a short test.
Here is the scheme for the years 2, 3 and 4 for your information. It shows which times table your child is working on during each week of the school year.
In years 5 and 6, the pupils continue weekly practice of a selection of times tables up to 12 times 12, to ensure consolidation and continued knowledge.
