Maths Home Learning Update – February and March

Dear CDPS Family

Home Learning

The school has continued to work on Maths activities for families to try at home. These activities are not additional homework but opportunities for families to share learning and engage in some simple and hopefully enjoyable activities. For almost all the activities all that is required is a pencil and paper and perhaps some items around the house.  Some of the activities can be done on the way to and from school, when shopping, etc.  I would encourage you to have a look at the school website (links below) and choose an activity which may be of interest.

Following feedback from the activities we sent out before Christmas , this time, rather than directing families to specific activities, families will be asked to looked at a topic that your child has covered or is currently being taught in class e.g. fractions. That way families can choose together which activity to do which will be of interest and is not too easy or too hard.

There are three levels of maths topic – Early (Nursery and P1), First (P2-P4) and Second (P5-7). Within each level there is a range of topics e.g. measurement, fractions, Information handling with a list of activities which get more challenging as you scroll down the page.

The above is only a guide and families are welcome to look at other Levels e.g. P1 may wish to look at the First Level pages as well as Early and P4 at Second level as well as First. Likewise, if a child is less confident with Maths then please have a look at the activities from an appropriate level.

I hope that the activities will further inform you of what is being learned in school and to give you ideas which will encourage discussion  and learning together at home that will have a positive impact on your child’s attainment. It should not be an onerous task and feedback is very welcome.

Our next step is to ensure that we have activities for the wide range of maths topics we have in school and to work on a library of Apps for parents to use at home. Please do let the school know of any useful apps, websites or activities that you may already use at home and we will share them with the school community. These can be for any curricular area – thank you.

It is planned to let families know on a monthly basis what the current maths topics in each class are so you can then look for activities on the school website.
