All children have been registered on the MyMaths website. This should 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.
Go to www.mymaths.co.uk and login at the top of the page with the school’s username and password in the My Portal box. MyMaths will then remember who they are and automatically log them in to the tasks.
This includes the School username holy_cross_rc_primary_school and the school password is cosine146.
Your child’s personal Login details have been sent home by their class teacher.
If your child has homework tasks set by their class teacher, which 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 on 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 support.
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 the ‘teacher’ is good for their confidence and gets them to talk about their thinking.
Please see your child’s teacher of 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!
