How can I help my Child with Maths?
In order to help your child with Maths at home it is important to make mathematical activities as much fun as possible - games, puzzles and jigsaws are a great way to start. It is also important to show how we use maths skills in our everyday lives and to involve your child in this.
Identifying problems and solving them can also help your child develop maths skills. If you see him or her puzzling over something, talk about the problem and try to work out the solution together.
Tips for helping your child to enjoy maths:
The school has produced its own booklet for parents showing the Calculation Methods that we use with the children in the classroom-see the link below. The booklet has lots of ideas for games and activities that parents can do at home with their children to help support their mathematics development. It also provides a list of useful websites with lots of fun Maths games and activities for children to try. Don't forget to encourage your child to go on Mathletics-there are bronze, silver and gold certificates available for children who complete the most tasks.
