Helping your Child with Maths
For practical ideas to help your child succeed in year 2 click on the pdf file above.
We aim to learn new multiplication facts each week. It is important that your child understands the significance of learning their tables and does not simply recite them like a poem.
In order to do this you need to set your child word problems where they need to use their knowledge of tables in real life situations.
Such as "If I bought 7 of these how much would it cost me?" Or "if there are 30 sweets and 5 children how many sweets would they get each?"
They need to understand that division is the opposite of multiplication and that by using multiplication facts they can solve division problems including those which involve money and giving change.
