The national curriculum for mathematics aims to ensure that all pupils develop the understanding and the ability to recall and apply knowledge rapidly and accurately. One thing that is crucial to the progress in maths is knowing lots of number facts and times tables all the way to 12×12!
Each year group will now be taking part in 10-15 minute daily Quick Maths sessions which will be separate from their normal mathematics sessions. Children will play a variety of games which will support the learning of different number facts.
An extra 10-15 minutes of extra maths practise every day at home will also support and develop your child’s confidence and ability with number. Below are just a few ideas of some games you could play and some web links to even more activities.
