Key Stage 2 - Maths strategies

As parents we sometimes find helping our children with their maths and general maths knowledge can be quite challenging for us.

The curriculum and teaching has changed and strategies that we were taught at school can now be different and can confuse children if we as parents teach them strategies that might not be what they are learning in school.

The language that children use might be different to what we have been taught for example - number bonds, bus stop, partitioning, grid method, chunking, and reasoning.

We have collated some fantastic resources that can help you as a parent to help your child gain that mathematics confidence.
