Supporting your child at home

Updated: Jun 13, 2023

There are a number of ways you can support your child at home, starting with helping with homework and practising times tables - a vital skill.

Below are some other resources which you may find useful.

Maths with Michael

Join TV presenter, teacher and parent Michael Underwood to bring you a mini-series called Maths with Michael. We understand that many parents feel like maths has changed and can sometimes find it difficult to keep up to date with modern teaching methods in maths.

There are 6 episodes, with an additional video on 'Has Maths Changed?'. Each episode includes a video and parent guide with suggested activities.

All videos can be found here and the parent guides can be found below.

Multiplication and division topics are also now available!
