Parental Help – Maths

OFF

We are always keen for parents to get involved in their child’s learning and are happy to provide any assistance that could help with this. Whether it be lists of spellings, details of maths methods, website hints and tips or expectations of writing, please ask your child’s teacher to supply what you require and they will do their best to help.

Below are some files that might be of help. Please click on the link to download them:

Maths: My Maths

My MathsWe have invested in ‘My Maths’, an online-based maths tool. Your child has been given a username and password, allocated maths games by their class teacher (at their level) and can choose from a wide range of games to play.Their teacher is able to monitor their progress and, as they answer more difficult questions in the higher levels, increase the difficulty of the games they play.

To gain access to the school’s library visit www.mymaths.co.uk and login: thepriory1, password: rectangle 292. All pupils have their own password and username.

 

 Rapid StepsRAPID RECALL
To help children practise and improve on basic number skills, we have been using Rapid Recall tests. These tests take 2 minutes to answer 24 questions of varying difficulty. Although some may seem simple, mastering 24 out of 24 marks in a short period of time takes some considerable skill.

Below is a document detailing the skills required to progress through the Rapid Recall system. Please click the link below to view.

And here are some suggested ideas and explanations about the targets in each step:
Step 1 – Parent targets
Step 2 – Parent targets
Step 3 – Parent targets
Step 4 – Parent targets
Step 5 – Parent targets
Step 6 – Parent targets
Step 7 – Parent targets

The way that each year group is taught the 4 main mathematical operations (+, -, x, ÷)  can cause some confusion. Here is the calculation policy to help you understand the methods we use in school and enable you to help your child understand them.
