Free Home Learning Resources And Maths Packs For Primary Maths (KS1 & KS2)
To support parents at home during school closure, we’ve put together as many of our primary maths resource as we can into free home learning packs and home learning resources for primary school pupils.
Third Space Learning exists to give schools and and teachers the means to help children learn and progress in KS1 and KS2 maths with interventions, teaching resources and maths packs. Since the onset of Covid-19, and now the coronavirus lockdown in the United Kingdom we are turning the experience and expertise we’ve acquired into providing free home learning packs for parents as well.
The following useful links are all to the free resources from the Third Space Maths Hub. We recommend you post a link to this page on your school website, or just pass it along to your parents so they can download them for themselves. All the resources are suitable for parents of pupils in key stage 1 or key stage 2 who’ve been following the KS1 or KS2 national curriculum.
The reason we have chosen these home learning resources is that we believe that parents will find them easy to manage – more practice and retrieval work than teaching – and they are appropriate for children at this stage of the year. Many of our resources follow week by week with the White Rose Maths Resources, so we know what stage your pupils are likely to be at in their maths learning.
Our team of teachers making new resources will be hard at work over the next few months creating and adapting resources for the whole school into maths packs and home learning packs that parents will find useful. Please email us firstname.lastname@example.org if there’s anything you especially need help with.

These home learning resources are specifically to help pupils keep up with their arithmetic and mental maths; our Fluent in Five scheme gives pupils between 4 and 6 questions a day to answer, as appropriate for their year group. One week Year 3 may be focusing on their subtraction skills, Year 2 on number bonds, and Year 6 on more complex place value questions. It follows a progression and is a fantastic start to a day’s home learning.
Fluent in Five is available for all year groups, with answers included. The questions are presented on powerpoint slides for school whiteboard use but are very suitable to be shown on a tablet. For Years 2 and Year 6 there are SATs assessment type tests included.
