How can parents help?

By getting children involved in shopping and cooking; looking at measures of weight and capacity, reading scales and measuring ingredients accurately. Talk about the differences between different units of measure e.g. millilitres and litres.


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.


Telling the time – please help your child practice this skill, looking at analogue and digital clocks in different contexts would help.


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