Helping your child meet their maths target Lots of games and activities to choose from! Target focus: Recall of (remembering) addition and subtraction facts Please ask your child’s teacher if you don’t know their target A booklet for parents/carers Swaffield PRIMARY SCHOOL

Helpful hints for parents Children are taught to understand addition as combining sets and counting on. Encourage children to talk about their calculation strategies. Ask questions such as: ‘How did you work that out?’ ‘Can you think of any other ways?’ ‘How do you know that?’ ‘What if you started with…….?’ How many more to make? Most of these games can be adapted to the target your child is working towards. Make a number track Each player chooses five numbers relating to their target. For example, if your child is working towards ways of making 10, they might write 2,3,5,7, 8. Ask questions like 8 + ? = 10. If they have it the child crosses off 2. First player to cross out all numbers is the winner. 5 green speckled frogs, 10 in a bed etc.
