Challenge Me Cards
Thank you for supporting Mathematics at home.
Your child will soon be receiving a 'Challenge Card'. These show the end of year expectations for mathematics in your child's year group, which you may find useful to know. For KS1, tasks set on MyMaths and Times Table Rock Stars 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 challenges. Just let them know via Tapestry, and they will be more than happy to check and give them a sticker for their effort.
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!
