Maths

Here you will find useful links and activities to help you to support your child with their Maths.

Calculation Methods

Our school calculation policy sets out the methods and layout used for different types of calculation taught at CKJS. Please click on the calculation type to see the poster for that operation which is displayed in your child's classroom.

 Your child's Maths homework will often include calculation practice so that they become increasingly fluent when using these methods. There are many websites which provide worksheets for further practice, although please make sure that your child uses the calculation method used at CKJS when answering them.

mymaths.co.uk can be used for further interactive Maths practice. Please contact your child's teacher if you require the username or password for access.

Times Tables

At CKJS we believe that times tables knowledge is an essential part of Maths. 

At the moment, we are using the 99 Club to encourage your child to learn their times tables, and assess their progress.

99 Club Tables Needed for each Club

Ideally, you should be practising times tables with your child daily until they can instantly recall all multiplication and division facts to 12 x 12. This doesn’t mean that you need to be setting your child lots of written worksheets!

Learning times tables with your child could include:

Chanting a new times table aloud, for example as you walk to school or climb the stairs.
Singing times table songs, which can be combined with actions, for example BBC Super Movers.
Asking your child a few times table questions at odd times of the day, especially any that they find hard to remember.
Throwing one or two dice, and multiplying the number shown by the times table your child is learning.
Using a deck of playing cards, turning over a card and multiplying the number shown (use the picture cards as 11,12 and 0) by the times table.
There are also many excellent online resources for practising times tables, such as ‘Hit the Button’ and 'Times Table Rockstars'
