Guidance for Parents
As a school we have registered all children 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.
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 pasword in the My Portal box. MyMaths will then remember who they are and automatically log them in to the tasks.
The school username is: moordown
The school password is: compass241
Your personal username is: (3 numbers)
Your personal password is: (3 letters)
(Your child will have receieved their personal username and password at school.)
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.
