Guidance for Parents


Encourage your child to engage in home learning every day. Share and discuss a text twice a week (comprehension). Hear your child read on a daily basis. Discuss your child’s learning at the end of each day and ask to see work completed in their exercise book.



Make sure your child is using all available on-line resources and that your child practises on them for at least 15 minutes per day.


Using a times table grid, test your child on the times tables they already know and try reversing them e.g. 3 x 8 = 24, so what times 3 = 24?


Practise the method of calculation that your child is learning for multiplication (x) addition (+) subtraction (-) and division (÷).


Talk to your child about maths and what they already know. If completing packs, ask your child to talk through their thinking (this is called reasoning) as to why or how they have got to their answer
