Spotted something about a number line in your child’s homework instructions, and not sure what it means? We review the basics of this amazing, adaptable educational tool and explain how it's used in KS1 and KS2 maths.
Work through the two worksheets we recommend each week as part of the Reception Maths Learning Journey and over the course of the year your child will cover all the key topics in the curriculum for their school year.
By following the programme, which closely mirrors what your child is being taught in school, you’ll quickly be able to spot any topics that your child hasn't fully grasped and reinforce learning that is happening in the classroom at home. Your child will feel more confident in their own abilities and you’ll know you are giving your child the very best chance of succeeding in school.
In Reception your child will develop the foundations of all their future numeracy work, learning to count accurately, add, subtract, order numbers correctly and use mathematical language. Find out where to support their learning at home with our Reception Maths Progress check, then plan lots of numbers fun to boost their confidence.
Our Reception Maths Progress checks are designed to help you practise counting, adding 'one more' and subtracting 'one less', basic shape recognition and other key skills with your child at home.
Each term’s maths check consists of 20 questions and a total of 20 marks. Work through the questions with your child and include plenty of drawing, Lego-brick counting and Smartie-eating 'subtraction' as possible!
