We recognise that homework can be a challenge with your children and that , without spending time trawling through the web, it is often hard to find websites that can support childrens learning, so here are some websites that will support maths. These are suitable mainly for KS2 and are fun too!
A copy of the calculation policy can be found by clicking on the link below. It shows how to support your children in their mathematics learning through the school from FS2 through to Y6. You will be able to see how maths calculations are taught from their beginnings through to harder concepts.
