Every child will be provided with a Maths Makes Sense homework folder in the autumn term. The video below explains the contents of the pack and how it is to be used to develop your child's basic arithmetic skills.
Sumdog Maths is an online tool that helps children practice mental mathematics through a range of fun and engaging games.
Early in the Autumn Term the children are given a username and password to access the site. The mathematical content is then be set by each child's class teacher to ensure each child starts with a fair challenge. Sumdog will then monitor each individual child's progress and adapt by increasing or decreasing the level of challenge, feeding back this progress to the class teacher (it is important therefore your child works independently on Sumdog).
As Sumdog runs on Adobe Flash it will not work on iPads or iPhones through Safari, but it can be downloaded as a free app on the App Store (See link below).
