Week 6

Extra Maths During Lockdown

Some parents have been asking for more work for their child/ren. White Rose Maths is a scheme that some of our year groups already follow and they are providing daily maths work for children from Early Years - Year 8. Please follow the link below and click on the year group of your choice - you will then need to follow the instructions on that screen. Please be patient as this website does sometimes crash when there are too many people across the country trying to access it as it is such a great resource. Please note that there are no extra sheets available but during the video, there are chances for the child to practise what is being taught and then the teacher will go over through it.
