This term we will following the Maths lessons created by ‘White Rose Maths’ which match our own school’s Maths program and will help you continue learning at home. (BBC bitesize will also be doing their own Maths lessons and these will be linked with the White Rose lessons in two weeks time so you will be able to look at both)
Each lesson has a short video to watch together with your adult and then some questions that you will all be able to complete in your blue books. (The answers are also there for you to check and mark your own work when you finish!)
