Please keep up with practising the half termly recall facts so far we have looked at number bonds to 20, division and multiplication facts for the 2 times table and halving and doubling with numbers up to 20.
Our focus this year is to learn the 2, 3, 5 and 10 times table and if you could practise these at home that would be great. We have now begun to learn the 3 times table too and have been using some great YouTube videos by Percy Parker to help us. You might want to take a look at these at home to help with practising these times tables. We are also using the conker maths website which has a lot great resources to support your child in developing their number skills. http://www.conkermaths.org/cmweb.nsf/products/conkerkirfs.html
