Money, Money, Money!
Use the resources below to learn about money with your child. The first links have a maths focus to make sure your children understand the value of coins and how to work out change. The other resources help your child to start understanding the importance of managing your money.
Problem Solving and Reasoning - Maths
Below are some questions and challenges for children who feel they have mastered place value and number.
These questions/challenges are meant to be tricky, so you think deeply about the maths. You do not need to complete them all at once. Two a day would be great!
Reasoning and Probelm Solving
'White Rose Maths' is the scheme we use to teach maths. Follow the link below to access lesson video tutorials and activities to go along with these videos - these have been specially designed for use at home. Before the closure, we were due to finish teaching 'Time' and move on to teaching fractions, so lessons about fractions have not been taught yet. It is important that the children continue to learn maths at the same rate that they would if school was open so please try to access these lessons. If you are struggling with any aspect of this, please email us to see if we can point you in the right direction!
