Here at Dean Gibson we deliver Maths using 'Mint Maths' which is an approach being developed by Kendal schools and is based around using equipment and putting maths into a real world context.

To ensure all children can have a deep understanding of  all the concepts being covered children use a wide range of equipment such as base ten, multilink, place value counters and coins.  We also give children problems based in a real world context before moving into more abstract tasks which are number based. 

 

How can parents support their children?

Every child in Key Stage 1 and 2 has been given an RM Easimaths login.  This is a programme they can access from home.  RM Easimaths sets the chidren tasks and tracks how well they are doing.  Once a child has shown they can do something the system automatically gives them something new to do.  Click here for the link: https://www.rmeasimaths.com/Easimaths/Account/LogIn 

 

Daily Maths Problem for Key Stage 2

Follow this link to find a daily maths problem.  Remember to always use paper to write down jottings and working out. http://www.transum.org/Software/SW/Starter_of_the_day/ 

 

Times tables are vital for all children starting in Year 1.  In Year 1 children begin to count in 2s, 5s and 10s.  In Year 2 children learn their 2s, 3s, 5s and 10 times tables.  In Year 3 we introduce the 4 and 8 times tables and by the end of Year 4 the children need to know all their multiplications up to 12 x 12.  Follow this link to find an activity they can complete to practice the times tables for their year group:  https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/hit-the-button
