Parent Guides to Supporting Maths at Home
The following videos demonstrate ways of developing pupils' maths skills at home.
In this 'Number Recognition' video, we ask, "How many ways can you show me 5?" This helps children to show that they understand the value of a number and to count using one-to-one correspondence (touching each item as they count it).
In this 'Number Bonds' video, we demonstrate different ways of showing number bonds to 10.
Bridging Ten (Adding three numbers that equal a number greater than 10)
In this video we demonstrate the method used to add three single digit number that will equal a total greater than 10. This method uses the children's knowledge of number bonds to 10; they should choose the two numbers that make 10 and then add on the final number.
