Maths Syllabus KS2- Key Topic Explanations

Parents ( and children for that matter) often need reminding how to deal with certain questions or reminding what is involved with reaching the right answers.

The topic items below are  key ones from the KS2 Syllabus and we have particularly focused on sourcing explanations to the questions which were most frequently noted as problem areas.

These topics can either be used as and when a question emerges or children can go through the topics one by one and in doing so this form a very valuable piece of revision work for them.
