Maths Homework for Key Stage 2 is a unique resource for busy teachers – a selection of ‘pencil-free’, hands-on activities that teachers can use as extension activities or give to pupils as homework to do with members of their family or friends. Each of the activities encourages the pupils to learn through discussion and through practical activities utilising everyday resources.
Each activity is quick and easy for pupils and teachers to manage, and includes:
- a learning aim
- full, clear instructions and discussion points
- tasks to develop collaboration and partnership between pupils, parents and teachers
- photocopiable resources.
A refreshing approach for teachers and pupils, these activities will foster enthusiasm for learning and inspire pupils' interest in Maths.
