Helping your child at home

The maths your child is doing at school may look very different to the kind of ‘sums’ you remember. This is because children are encouraged to work mentally, where possible, using personal jottings to help support their thinking. Even when children are taught more formal written methods (from Year 3), they are only encouraged to use these methods for calculations they cannot solve in their heads.

Below are a series of documents to help you with ideas to support your child’s mathematical development at home.

Have fun!
