Helping your child to master their number facts is one of the most useful things that you can do to support them with Math at home.
Number facts are a crucial part of early maths development in children aged between 5 and 11, so it is very important that your child has them by heart at an early stage!
What are number facts?
Number facts are early stage addition, subtraction, multiplication and division calculations that children should be able to recall easily and off by heart.
Times tables are a fundamental part of children being confident mathematicians. Once children become fluent in their number facts and times tables facts, they will begin to gain confidence in other areas of maths; they will see patterns and gain a deeper understanding of fractions, division and ratio to name a few.
