Maths Catch-up opportunitiesThe following two maths catch-up opportunities may be suitable for primary aged children and could be useful to share with parents, especially in the lead up towards the summer holiday.

Splashlearn has a whole set of apps for different ages – they are all also available on the web and accessible through a browser on tablets etc. SplashLearn is free for parents ,or teachers, to sign up to and it seems like an ideal home app for summer use and catch-up. Children can move forward or backwards and parents can monitor levels, spotting potential weaknesses and trying to reinforce those areas by moving back a little into a previous level.

Instead of a single grade, kids can now access to practice content for all Grades 1 to 5. This benefits all learners- the kid who has completed his/her grade level, can now go beyond and practice the next grade level; and the kid who needs revision of previous grade skills, can go back and strengthen them. Splash Math adapts to the kid’s level and ensures mastery of all grade level math skills. This App comes with cross-platform accessibility; kids can access Splash Math through the desktop or iPad using the same log in. This app has another brilliant feature of insightful performance reports in graphical dashboard enabling parents to know the trouble spots and strengths of their kids while they practice.”(SplashLearn)
