Maths

On this page, we have tried to add links to useful sites to support your child with maths whilst you are at home.

TT RockStars

Pupils in Years 2 to 6 have access to TT RockStars to support them with their recall of multiplication facts.

Can you improve your average rock speed and become a rock hero?

Numbots

Until 27th April, you will be able to use your TT RockStar login details to access Numbots. Their aim is for pupils to use efficient mental calculation strategies to add and subtract two digit numbers. For most effective practice, we suggest playing for at least 3 minutes a day, 4 or 5 times a week. 

Please note, activities may be too simple for some pupils in Years 5 and 6.

IXL

Whilst using IXL, pupils can select areas of maths that they feel less secure about and practice questions based on multiple choice.

At the end of the week, class teachers are sent an email which shows the areas pupils have been working on as well as how accurate they have been.

Home Learning

White Rose have created daily maths lessons for pupils to complete. These include a video lesson followed by activities for pupils to complete. Answers are also provided.

Links

For more websites, please visit our maths page which provides links to useful sites to support your child in maths as well as a range of other games and activities.

Each class has supplied pupils with maths work as part of their home learning pack. If for any reason these are lost, please contact your class teacher who will direct you to other resources.

Under each class, there is also a link to activities you can complete to support your child in maths- these can be found under the relevant year group of the emergency closure page. If your child is finding these too tricky, try some of the activities from the year group below.

Below are also a range of games you can play at home with little or no equipment:

  • Maths Games
  • Play a board game
  • Sing number songs
  • Twister Maths Stick labels with numbers, shapes, or images of coins onto the circles of a Twister mat. Give each student in turn an equation, a description of a shape, or an amount of money, then have the student place his or her hand or foot on the answer.
    • KS2 Challenge: Label the mat with numbers ending in zero, then call out numbers and tell kids they must round up or down to the nearest answer.
  • Money Give your child some coins to practice counting money.
  • Real life Maths Create a diary of all the maths you need in a day.
  • Shape identify shapes in your home- photograph or draw them.

You can keep a record of any extra maths you do in your exercise books or you could email your teacher and tell them about what you have been doing!
