Dear Parents and Carers,
Welcome to the new Maths section of our school's website. I will be using this section to keep those of you at home up-to-date with relevant news and information regarding Maths here at Longlands.
Firstly, I wanted to take this opportunity to thank all of you who attended my Maths sessions for parents over the Summer Term. It was lovely to meet so many of you, and I hope that you found the sessions both informative and useful for supporting your child's mathematical development at home. As promised, below you will find copies of each of the Powerpoint presentations that I used which you can download and view again if you so desire. Underneath the relevant Powerpoint for each year group you will also find a copy of the 'Mathematical Vocabulary for Parents' document I mentioned at the sessions.
For those of you with children who have just started in Reception, myself and the EYFS team will be hosting an evening session for parents tailored specifically for those with the youngest learners in the school in the very near future.
In addition to the presentations for each year group, you will also find on this page a timetable for Years 2 to 6 about what Times Tables the children will be tested on each week. Every week the children will complete a test on that week's Tables and be given a corresponding Homework sheet designed to explore different way of applying their knowledge.
As I say, over the coming weeks and months more information will be added to this page so please do check back regularly. As always, if there is anything I can do to help support you with Maths, or if you have any questions, then please don't hesitate to come and find me.
