Useful Webs for Supporting Children’s Learning
Useful Mathematics Websites for Parents and Children
As part of our ongoing efforts to sustain and further improve our very high standards of maths at St. Luke’s, we would like to share a list of useful websites that may help your child with their learning. Children learn best when they practice a new skill in lots of different exciting ways, both in school and at home. The websites include lots of resources and games which help children practice their maths skills. Enjoy practicing your learning!
