White Rose Maths

Helping your child with maths (It’s far more fun than you think!)

Many people think they ‘can’t do maths’, but with exciting new teaching approaches, we’re proving day by day that every child really can love and succeed in maths! What’s more, we want to make it as easy as possible for you to support your child’s learning, so here are some helpful tips from our fantastic team.

  • Try not to hurry through the curriculum. Remember that understanding each small step is the path to your child’s success: rushing ahead simply doesn’t work!
  • If your child is struggling with particular topics, try looking instead at work on the same topics from earlier in the year or a previous year. This will help to plug any learning gaps and make sure your child understands the topic more clearly.
  • Use our free parent workbooks to identify where your child might be struggling. There is a workbook for every block at primary level ­- and the secondary workbooks will be on their way very soon!
  • Is your child finding maths easy? Why not have a go at some of our problem solving activities or bar modelling problems? These are great exercises for stretching young minds and building new skills and insights!

The White Rose Maths team are here to help. If you have any more questions, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us by email. You can also sign up for our White Rose Maths Parent Newsletter. And of course, we’d love you to follow us on Facebook and Twitter!

We hope that our schemes, videos and other resources will be really helpful for you and your family. If so, please let us know!

Third Space Learning 

At Finstock our children have the opportunity to take part in Third Space Learning sessions at school. This is currently taking place with our Key Stage 2 children.

Third Space Learning provides personalised 1-to-1 lessons in Maths from specialist tutors and helps to support the child with specific areas in Maths that they find more challenging. Each session is carefully planned to suit a child’s needs as they complete a diagnostic assessment before they take part in their sessions.

The children thoroughly enjoy having a 1:1 lesson and love sharing their ideas and explanations verbally throughout a session.
