## How can you support your child at home

 The MyMaths and Corbettmaths websites provide useful videos and other resources that students can use to aid them in their studies. The MyMaths website username is Brindley and the password is addition. All pupils will be setup with a login for Mathswatch where they can access videos, worksheets and online tasks. This is a valuable resource for revision and to cover topics that have been missed. When pupils complete exam papers as assessments their results are uploaded to Pinpoint Learning which produces a gap analysis linked to Mathswatch. The pupils will have folders that contain their gap analysis and personalised revision booklets. Please support them in using this to fill the gaps through Mathswatch.
