Learning at Home
To help with children’s learning, we would encourage them to consolidate their understanding of these facts and mental strategies. This selection builds upon those which have been given in the previous years and gives the foundations of their learning to come.
A solid understanding of these can support children’s school learning and allow them to access the more complex elements of mathematics.
Children may also, occasionally, be given Learn Its. These support children to develop their knowledge and memory of what they will need to know for upcoming topics in maths. This is not homework as such but is sent home to support children’s school work.
Children are also encouraged to access TTRS daily to ensure a rapid recall of the multiplication facts.
