How can children be supported at home?

Be positive about maths. Try not to say things like "I can't do maths" or "I hated maths at school" – your child may start to think like that themselves.


Point out the maths in everyday life. Include your child in activities involving numbers and measuring, such as shopping, cooking, and travelling.


Praise your child for effort, rather than for being "clever". This shows them that by working hard, they can always improve.


Parents can also help at home with skill building and fluency practices, for example learning and memorising basic facts.  Practice is essential. You could chant times table, sing songs, recall number bonds to 10 and 20 and up-to 100. You could make flash cards with tricky facts on to help your child to learn them.


There are also some excellent websites that your children can log onto at home to help improve their maths;


For parents who have children in Key Stage 2, and especially in year 3 & 4, we really do need and appreciate your continued support to help them practise their times tables. Some easy ways to do this include; reciting times tables by rote and using apps and games (your child has a login to TTR Rockstars).  See additional Parents Guide below.
