Support with home learning
As a school we believe that mathematical understanding is achieved by using exploring and investigating. Therefore, children are introduced to concepts by the use of concrete objects to help them make sense of a concept or problem throughout all year groups.
These give children the freedom to explore concepts through physical manipulation, allows them time to experiment and investigate, therefore building confidence and the use of mathematical language.
As the children’s understanding grows, they can move on to the abstract problems (using numbers and formula). They are able to see how numbers are represented and how a formula works as they have already spent the time exploring the concept.
To support your child at home, the attachments below give you an overview of what is expected in your child’s year group by the end of the academic year. They also:
• Provide activities that can be used at home to support your child’s understanding
• Reassure you that we will all be ok…
If you are concerned about your child’s understanding or progress in Maths, please speak to the class teacher.
