Challenge Me Cards


Thank you for supporting Mathematics at home.

Your child will soon be receiving a 'Challenge Card' to keep at home. These show the end of year expectations for mathematics in your child's year group, which you may find useful to know. You may wish to keep them somewhere safe at home to refer to. Tasks set on MyMaths will also help your child to consolidate these skills. Teachers will be more than happy to reward your child with a sticker if they succeed at practising/mastering any of the areas. Please upload to Tapestry any of your child's extra mathematical home learning.


When working with your child, please encourage them to believe they can succeed, one small step at a time. When encountering difficulties, encourage the view that challenges and mistakes are how we learn, they are really important!

Use the word ’yet’!  If they say they ‘can’t do it’ add the word ‘yet’ on the end, because with effort and time they will achieve!

Thank you.
