After half term, we will be moving on to fractions: identifying equivalent fractions and recognising common equivalents. And we will finish the term by looking at formal multiplication and finding the area of "D shapes.
Here are a few websites with games on that you may be interested to use at home to help support your child’s learning in Maths:
The children all have a login in to TT Rockstars (www.ttrockstars.com). This is a website that will help children to practise and revise their times tables. Children are encouraged to log on as often as they can to help embed their times tables.
Practising numeracy skills such as number bonds, mental arithmetic and telling the time, in a friendly and informal way like in the car or at the shops, will also help improve/consolidate their learning in class.
