Learning at Home

by Mr Hughes


Some of your teachers might have already shared White Rose Maths home learning lessons - here is the link again in case you haven't had chance to take a look just yet.


Your teachers already use lots of White Rose resources in your lessons so the types of problems, the methods you use to solve the problems and the images to help you solve them will look familiar. There is a video for every activity to show you how to complete each objective and then some challenges to try at home!

The Maths Factor is a site by Carol Vorderman offering a free subscription for parents during school closures. The website has lots of games and activities to try and there are live lessons everyday at 1pm.

Keep checking your class blog for updates from your teachers and remember, there are lots of Maths games and activities on Purple Mash which you can try as well
