How can parents help?

Many children find work on telling the time challenging. Please encourage them to practise at home using analogue and digital times; telling the time, working out time intervals etc.


By the end of year 4, the objective is for all children to know their times tables up to 12x12 so any support you can provide with recalling times tables would be appreciated.


Encourage your child to take as much pride in their homework presentation as their presentation in school books.
