Working at home in the Silver Birches
In school we use Times Tables Rock Star to aid the quick recall of all the times tables. We encourage children to play for around 3 minutes a day, as a little and often is a great way to practice. Each child has a bespoke set of tables set for them to practice in their 'Garage'. This is the best feature to use when on TTRS to practice the targeted tables.
To support you with helping your children with their learning, the website Maths with Parents provides 'how to' videos, games and activities for many areas of the maths curriculum.
The BBC Bitesize website provides videos and activities to support spelling, punctuation, grammar and using dictionaries. This will support in understanding some of the terminology used in school.
The Accelerated Reader website provides quizzes on the books read at home. They do not need to be books from school. It also recommends books and tells you the reading level.
