Primary teachers waste hours setting, collecting and marking homework, yet the evidence base suggests there is no positive impact on children’s attainment. This set of books, available for all levels from Reception to Year 6 are a possible solution.
Aimed at children currently working at Year-4 level, this book of 10 activities acts like a reading diary (except it’s a maths diary!). They are designed for children to take home and work on a fun mathematical activity with a parent, who initials and sends the book back. Although there are only ten tasks in the book, they are each suitable for repeating several times, to help reinforce learning.
Although these cost £5 when purchased singly, if you wish to buy a class set, they are available for only £1. See here for details.
