Developing children’s knowledge of mathematical facts, so that they know them ‘by heart’ is a valuable tool to support calculation strategies, empowers the children and enable them to approach tasks with confidence. Regular practice is needed to secure knowledge and help children instantly recall facts.
Below are a set of sheets we use in school to support children with this. Children are given 2 minutes to complete a column and a scoring system for each column is at the bottom of each sheet.
When you feel as though your child is confident with a sheet, feel free to move them onto the next sheet.
As always, if there are any questions, please contact your class teacher via Dojo.
