Maths homework will be given out fortnightly as the children are completing weekly homework in their Home Learning Books.
Maths homework will be given out on alternate Thursdays and must be returned the following Tuesday. Maths homework will be a mixture of written and practical tasks including games to play.
It is absolutely fine to help your child with their Maths homework but please do not do it for them. If your child becomes stuck encourage them to talk about different ways they can solve the problem e.g. if they get stuck on addition or subtraction calculations then strategies such as finding the difference between two numbers, counting on from lowest to highest number, expanding the numbers (split into thousands, hundreds, tens, ones), drawing the number and using visual counting aids (hundred square, home made place value counters) are great ways to work out answers.
