End of Year Maths Objectives
We love Nrich!
Nrich is a fantastic website! There are hundreds of games and problem solving activities to explore.
You can use the search engine in the top right hand corner to find activities linked to various topics. Activities are organised by level of challenge, 1 star being the simplest and 4 star being the toughest.
We would advise that pupils aim to work around the 2 star challenges for key stage 2 but you may want to try 1 star and 3 star as well!
Try out some Maths games!
TopMarks is an engaging website to practise a variety of Mathematical skills. From times tables to numbers bonds, this website has it all. And the best thing about it is that it is free! Get your child to try out some games on the computer or tablet and we can guarantee they will be hooked! We are sure that use of TopMarks games will support their times tables and Maths fluency knowledge and help them to progress through the Math-Magician Scheme.
Mathematics for Deeper Understanding
The Mathematics Shed is a great website with hundreds of videos, maths resources, problems and puzzles. It may take a little bit of searching to find a resource that will be suitable for your child but your child’s class teacher or Mr Medwell, the Maths Coordinator, will be happy to point you in the right direction.
Maths through Stories
Mr Medwell’s favourite new website! This site is designed to help children who are struggling to access Maths by making it real and tangible, not just rooted in the abstract! The link below will lead you to some videos and stories that have a mathematical theme. You could explore these videos with your child, pausing periodically to discuss the Maths in each part of the story. Give it a go and tell Mr Medwell what you think! He’d love to get your thoughts on the site!
The National Curriculum
Below you will find the National Curriculum for Maths. The National Curriculum gives us a framework for how we structure or curriculum year on year.
