How you can help. Ensure your child completes their homework. Read regularly with your child and question their understanding of what they are reading. Regularly test their times tables knowledge and involve them in everyday Maths e.g. handling money, calculating the cost of shopping and reading the time. Regularly practise spellings. Encourage your children to use Mathletics. If you are ensure of any methods we use in school, please ask and we will go over it.
