At Lark Hill we know that it is vital that children develop early number sense and learn to enjoy playing with mathematics if they are to experience success. Games, puzzles and problem solving are essential to this end. This page aims to introduce you to fun, easy ways to support your child’s mathematical understanding. Please follow the links and play the games: if you tell us that you have played any of these games with your child, that counts as homework.

Please also read this document outlining our approach to the teaching of mathematics at Lark Hill.


Times Tables

We use songs to learn the times tables. Once we have learnt the tables number facts in order using the songs and the 1, 2 ,3number game, we play other games, like Racetracks, to learn them in any order. Watch these videos so you can sing the songs with your child.
