Help to Learn

This section of the website has a number of resources for parents to assist their children at home using methods that the children are already familiar with.  The resources will be added on a regular basis and  will be sorted by topic.



Cracking Times Tables

These sheets are designed for to help children practise their times tables.  There are 20 levels, level 1 being the easiest and level 20 the most difficult.  If a sheet is completed in the 3 minutes allowed and all answered correctly children can then progress to the next level.

Fluency Tutorials

Fluency is being able to use a variety of number facts such as (8+2=10, 7+3=10, 10-2=8, 7x4=28) and methods such as column addition to work out answers in different maths topics.  We have created a number of video tutorials to visually demonstrate how to help your child improve mathematical fluency.
