Homework doing your head in? Read wish-I'd-known tips from other parents on Mumsnet's Education pages.
Just wondering what's the average age/school year a child should be able to do mental arithmetic at eg counting or subtracting from 20 without the use of a number square or number line etc...
Certainly they are starting it at y1. I don't know whether it is an expectation, though.
www.mumsnet.com/Talk/primary/1614756-mental-arithmeticthought these two probably go together.
My ds can do addition/subtraction in his head consistently up to 20 and up to 100 with a few inconsistencies, but I am told this is very advanced for his age (reception). I would think yr 1 or 2 but maybe a teacher can confirm?
Thanks everyone for your replies and thanks for linking the other thread which I had not see LaBelle - it has some good tips!
