Whitehouse Primary School uses rolling numbers as a strategy to support children to start to learn their multiplication facts. The rhythm and actions help the children to develop their recall. Children use their fingers for each multiple to 10 to help them make the connection between the multiplication fact and the rolling number they are chanting. This is used as a simple strategy which children then use to help them to become fluent in their multiplication facts.

Reading questions Questions to ask your child when sharing stories or books.
Reading is such an important skill and passion to develop – sharing books together as a family is an amazing opportunity to laugh, cry and learn together! As you read, remember to check your child’s understanding by asking them questions. Can they prove their answers by showing you where it is in the text? Can they explain their ideas?
