Maths: PARENTS' Page

Note to Parents: Along with other sections in this 'maths curriculum' area of our website, we hope that this page will support your own understanding of maths - and perhaps help you see the subject in a new light!

 

Questions or queries? We'd love to hear them! Don't be afraid to approach your child's class teacher or the maths subject leader (Mr. Barrett) ...

How Parents Can Help (Top Tips from Blair Peach: Whole School)

Maths at Home: 15 Top Tips

This resource has been prepared by Third Space Learning - a provider that we use to support the needs of many learners at school (including some one-to-one online lessons).

Advice for Parents (Youcubed.org)

This final 'advise' is written by a British maths teacher (the brilliant Jo Boaler). She works in America so some of the terminology and links may not be helpful, but the main messages are again hopefully very clear.
