This work would usually be done in Early Years and continued in Reception. Addition, subtraction, multiplication and division papers are arranged in the order in which they would be taught. It can be useful to parents to find a stage in the processes which have been taught to your child in school and start again at a slightly easier paper to increase confidence. There are pages on Parents in Touch to help parents understand how the four rules of number are taught in school. This page also covers all other aspect of maths weight. length, money, geometry, algebra up to areas covered in the GSCE syllabus. You will find SATs papers, and other maths examination papers on the site for revision and support. We hope that this is useful to you.
