Maths Home Learning involves games or activities to learn and quickly recall number facts. Children in Key Stage 2 will be given a times table booklet which we use to record progress and let you know which facts to work on with your child. Your child will be tested on these once a week. To support the learning of tables your child will be given a login and password for Rockstars which is a carefully sequenced programme of daily times tables practice.
