  • Children go back to basics in maths

    Daydream Education News

    15th June, 2012

    This week, the Telegraph reported that "children will be introduced to times tables, mental arithmetic and fractions in the first two years of school as part of a back-to-basics overhaul of the National Curriculum. 5 to 6 year olds will be expected to count to 100, recognise basic fractions and know their times tables up to 12x12."

    "The proposals are intended to ensure that children are given a proper grounding in the basics at a young age to prepare them for the demands of secondary education and beyond."

    "It represents a dramatic toughening up of standards demanded in English state schools in a move designed to benchmark lessons against those found in the world’s most advanced education systems, such as Singapore, Hong Kong and parts of the United States."

    From our popular Multiplication & Times Tables titles to Fractions, Decimals and Percents , we provide Maths resources in several different formats to suit your classroom needs! Designed to help you improve standards and pupil retention.

    Daydream Education Maths and educational resources are available for Key Stages 1 to 4 as:

    Colourful A1 Wall Charts, ideal for educational poster displays in the classroom

    Highly-engaging Interactive Whiteboard software

    Interactive VLE Content suitable for all major VLE's and anywhere-access

    and

    Pocket-sized revision guides

    Begin using our Maths Interactive Content Packs completely free with a 30 day free trial! The trial allows you to evaluate the software before you purchase.
