Mathematics has changed considerably over the years and the methods used in school can be confusing. To help understand the different methods, please look at our Calculation Policy. You are welcome to talk to your child's class teacher if you have any concerns.

Supporting your child with maths at home


Be positive about maths. Don't say things like "I can’t do maths" or "I hated maths at school"; your child might start to think like that themselves.

Point out the maths in everyday life. Include your child in activities involving maths such as using money, cooking and travelling.

Praise your child for effort rather than talent - this shows them that by working hard they can always improve.

Support your child to learn their times tables and number bonds - knowing these facts fluently will support your child in all areas of their maths learning. 


The link below has some ideas of games and activities to support your child in their maths learning.

Becoming a 'Literacy driven parent' at home.

Reading is at the heart of learning at Poppleton Ousebank, as we acknowledge how the love of reading improves the use of language, the understanding of skills associated with reading and the knowledge that we can gain from engaging with text. Through our curriculum work, we pass on our enthusiasm for reading and show children how they can learn from books, the internet and other reading sources. We encourage you to be part of your child's reading motivation and success by reading to them, with them and getting excited about books.
