The importance of PRACTICE, PRACTICE, PRACTICE
Regular practice (5 mins per day) is vital as it helps our students consolidate their number sense and basic math knowledge and enables them to be ready to learn more complex math concepts.
Below are some apps and websites we find really useful to support our students with practicing their basic facts and number sense. Having your child practice their basic facts for 5-10 mins each day will make a difference to their learning.
