How You Can Help


Developing your child’s independence and preparing him/her for SATs and the transition to high school will be important this year, so supporting with homework and your child’s personal organisation is essential. Also, look out for the homework projects that we will be setting during each topic to enhance your child’s creative skills!


Regular times table practice up to twelve will enable your child to have an essential basic skill required when calculating within maths. Allow your child to make jottings when tackling maths calculations to develop logical thinking and working systematically. Guide your children through their thinking and encourage them to work through any difficulties.
