A parents' guide to times tables
How to help your child learn multiplication facts.
Your support at home is the key to your child's success and enjoyment of maths!
Your involvement as parents and carers is very important. Practise of mental skills at home will support the work they do in school, and extra confidence will help your child enjoy the subject.
In our busy lives even just a few minutes here and there can really help. The most important thing you can do is to TALK and LISTEN to them about their work in numeracy, perhaps by asking your child to show you something they have learned or practised in their numeracy lesson that day. There are also lots of opportunities to notice numbers in every day life by counting money, telling the time or whilst cooking.
If your child is struggling, don’t worry! Be positive. Praise them for what they can do and keep on working with them. Please come and talk to your child's class teacher if you have any questions or concerns.
