Mathematics Home Learning - Term Time
As schools worldwide close for now in response to COVID-19, you might be wondering how best to help your child or children with their studies at home.
The White Rose Maths Team has prepared a series of five maths lessons for each year group from Year 1-8 as well as learning tasks for EYFS. Lessons will be added on a weekly basis for the next few weeks. Every lesson comes with a short video showing you clearly and simply how to help your child to complete the activity successfully.
Just follow these four easy steps…
- Click on the set of lessons for your child’s year group.
- Watch the video (either on your own or with your child).
- Find a calm space where your child can work for about 20-30 minutes.
- Use the video guidance to support your child as they work through a lesson.
A regular daily learning routine will help your child to learn more effectively at home. We therefore recommend that you aim to cover just one 20-30 minute White Rose Maths session each day.
And there’s more… The White Rose team will be online every weekday from Monday 23rd March, between 10.00 and 11.00am to share children’s questions, examples and stories via any of our social media channels. So wherever you are in the world, encourage your child to be part of the daily White Rose Maths fun and conversation!

Times Tables Revision
Times Tables Rock Stars (TTRS) is a carefully sequenced programme of daily times tables practice.
Each week concentrates on a different times table, with a recommended consolidation week for rehearsing the tables that have recently been practised every third week or so.
This format has very successfully boosted times tables recall speed for hundreds of thousands of pupils over the last 8 years in over 14,000 schools - both primary and secondary - worldwide.
Additional Mathematics lessons and questions
Providing complete curriculum coverage from Key Stage 1 to A Level, MyMaths offers interactive lessons, “booster packs” for revision, and assignable homework and worksheets, along with a wealth of resources that will help you deliver your teaching in the classroom and at home to develop your students’ confidence and fluency in maths.
Each day on I See Maths, there will be a new video lesson for Y3/4 children to watch (all the Y3/4 lessons are here), and a separate video lesson for Y5/6 children to watch (all the Y5/6 lessons are here). Each video explores a big mathematical idea in small, easy-to-follow steps. Then, following on from the teaching in the videos, there are a range of tasks for the children to complete. A new lesson is posted at 9am every day. Everything is free and the videos will continue for the duration of the UK school closures. In the first three weeks, the videos have had a mind-blowing 117.9k views.
