Parent Information

 

Hello and welcome to the parent zone.  Here you will find resources and information about the Primary Maths Curriculum and ways to best support your child in developing their maths skills.

 

Everyone knows that school is not the only place where children learn. Home life plays a vital part in the development of children both emotionally, socially and academically.

 

Completing maths tasks at home, is extremely valuable.   This may include helping with homework or it may involve providing children with maths tasks at home, such as counting or grouping objects, counting coins and working out costs, calculating change at the shop, learning about time, measuring ingredients, describing and sorting shapes, and learning times tables. 

 

This zone provides links to websites that have games and activities that your child can play at home and provide information about your child’s development in mathematics.

 

Helping your child with maths

Try to make maths as much fun as possible - games, puzzles and jigsaws are a great way to start. It's 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.  Just trying to find an answer will greatly benefit your child even if they don’t find the solution immediately.

 

Don't shy away from maths if you didn’t like it at school. Try to find new ways to enjoy the subject with your child.  We have a links to useful websites that can provide maths support if you wish to develop your own maths knowledge further.

Tips for helping your child to enjoy maths:

 

·         Point out the different shapes to be found around your home.

·         Take your child shopping and talk about the quantities of anything you buy.

·         Let your child handle money and work out how much things cost.

·         Look together for numbers on street signs and car registration plates.

·         Encourage your child to find games that they enjoy on our website.

·         Cook with your child.  Cooking provides many opportunities to develop maths skills including measuring, reading    measuring scales, setting temperatures, cooking times, scaling recipes, using mathematical language such kilograms, litres and  millilitres.

·         Encourage your child to complete their homework to the best of their ability and remember to reward perseverance as well as completing the task
