KIRFs are designed to support the development of the mental skills that underpin much of the maths work in school. They are particularly useful when calculating, be it adding, subtracting, multiplying or dividing. Practicing KIRFs as maths homework will consist of short, snappy, practical activities, ideally to be done daily. Each half term your child will receive a KIRFs target, then activity cards with practical ideas to do as homework will be given each week. All you need to do is sign and date your child’s new homework and reading record each time they do an activity.
