A little extra Maths...


White Rose have released some brilliant resources to support maths at home. If you want to do anything extra with your child, these free booklets are brilliant.




White Rose 1 minute Maths APP


Take a look at the new and brilliant White Rose App to support children with maths at home. 1-Minute Maths covers subitising, addition and subtraction. You can download it for free and it is really easy to follow. The idea is that your child would do 1 minute a day to support and embed their maths knowledge.
