Maths Key Fact Sheet
This is given to each child at the beginning of the year and provides a good foundation from which they can develop further their Numeracy skills throughout the year. Should they lose their copy, it can be downloaded from the bottom of this page. Children will be asked to learn different sections of the sheet throughout the year.
Children are given a weekly times table test to help them to increase their speed and accuracy. Helping your child with this, is beneficial to their progress.
