How can parents help?

By getting children involved in reading and telling the time. Working out time intervals, using time tables and converting between digital 12 and 24 hour times and analogue.


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.
