My Maths!

Each week your maths teacher will set you homework on MyMaths linked to your learning. This is always set on a Friday and due on a Tuesday. You can attempt the activity as many times as you like to improve your score.


Seesaw is an online platform that allows children to complete tasks at home on the computer. It is also a brilliant resource for allowing teachers to share with you the work your child has been doing in school.
