Numeracy

 
 
Currently, in maths...

In Maths we will be practising how to read different scales, interpret statistics and learning about shape and positioning  . We will be continuing our learning of time and practising our times tables up to 12 x 12! 

 

 

 Message to Parents:
 
Our children need to know their times tables off by heart. If they know their times tables they can access a wide variety of maths with much more ease. This can only come by practising. Here are a few useful web-sites to help them:
