Hints and tips

  • Challenge your child’s fluency and ability to problem solve with mathematical calculation.
  • Challenge, but don’t be tempted to move too far too fast. Children need to master concepts before moving on – this means that they can approach the application from every angle and in every context and can problem solve very effectively using the applications.
  • Your child will have a growing number of options and approaches to calculations that they will have encountered at school. Encourage them to share their methods rather than insist they complete calculations a set way that you are used to.
  • BBC Bitesize’s Guardians: Defenders of Mathematica and Premier League Primary Stars Maths (select Rising Star) are good games that are suitable for Year 4.
