All children will be registered on the MyMaths website. This will help them to structure their maths work and enable you to see how they are progressing.
The following information will help you support your child in accessing and using MyMaths. How to access MyMaths
Go to www.mymaths.co.uk and login at the top of the page with the school’s username and password.
On the next page your child should enter their personal username and password in the My Portal box.
MyMaths will then remember who they are and automatically log them in to the tasks.
Login Details will be provided within a personalised letter in the New Year.
If your child has been set a task by their teacher it will appear in the Homework area. There is a link to the lesson if they want to revise first, and a link to the homework itself. When your child completes both pages of an Online Homework the scores will be saved to the database.
Their teacher will be able to see how well they did and leave feedback. If a green star appears next to a topic, they have good skills in that area. If an amber star appears they still have some difficulties. If a red star appears they need to go back and relearn the topic.
Get them to try the lesson again or ask their teacher for extra help. If you want to work with your child, an effective strategy is to pretend that you have forgotten how to do something and ask them to show you how.Putting your child in the position of “teacher” is good for their confidence and gets them to talk about their thinking. You should also be clear about the support that the school offers.Please see your child’s maths teacher if you have any more questions. If no links are working then you have a Pop-Up Blocker, you must allow MyMaths to use Pop-Ups. We suggest you add www.mymaths.co.uk to your list of trusted sites.
Finally, please be aware that if you login with your child’s details, anything you do will appear on their score sheet. Don’t just go in and play as you may create results which your child’s teacher will think are theirs!
