Dear Parent/Carer of pupils in Year 1,

 

This year, the class will be using Maths with Parents as part of their home learning in Maths. Teachers will set a Maths with Parents task every two weeks for your child to complete.

 

Learning outside the classroom makes such a difference to children’s progress in Maths and this platform has created ways for families to discover the fun in Maths together.

 

New teaching methods, time constraints and lack of confidence can be issues when learning Maths at home. Maths with Parents provides a solution where you and your child watch a short video explaining the topic and then play a game or activity together using items around the home.  Each topic is chosen by the class teacher, so it is the same as what your child is currently learning.
