Helping children with mathematics: Year 5 to Year 6

What is it?
These resources are designed to help parents support children with learning mathematics, towards the end of Year 5 or the start of Year 6. They involve practical real-life examples which can greatly enhance a child's learning.
Each card has a number of activities. It is best not to try to cover everything in one go. Try the first activity with the child and then come back to the card a few days later. Each card will provide enough activities for three or four short sessions and the in-between time will allow them to reflect on their learning.
The activities are designed to be stand-alone. However, it is likely that they will link to what the child is currently doing in class.
