Useful Websites

We hope that you find the content of this page really helpful in supporting your child's learning at home in Maths.

Mental calculation strategies are equally important. We want the children to decide the most efficient way to answer a calculation. These methods can vary depending on the style and size of the calculation.  So with this in mind, we have embedded links to games and activities that will strengthen your child's number facts.

Children need factual knowledge -- for example, number pairs and multiplication. Without these, children will find it difficult to solve problems. With practice, your child will increase their speed and accuracy, and doing these activities with your child will help you to understand which number facts your child needs to focus on.
