Top Tips for Maths


This year we have added more Maths-based Top Tips for Learning for you to practise at home with your child.  We chose this subject because despite being one of the highest attaining Infant Schools nationally, our children achieve less well in Maths when compared with Reading.  Also, many parents were taught differently when they were at school - knowing how we teach maths will help you when helping your child with their homework.  The key to all this is good communication: if your child is stuck or unsure of their Maths work then we will have probably spoken together already - but if not, pop in and talk to us and together, we'll see what we can do.

We have arranged the podcasts into order of difficulty - presented by our teachers and, of course, our Headteacher.
