Ideas for helping with maths at home

As parents and carers you play a vital role in supporting your child's development of mathematical skills and understanding.


Finding opportunities for your child to practise and apply their mathematical understanding in a variety of practical ways at home and also when out and about would be very beneficial. For example, when shopping, measuring and cooking.


Below is a list (by no means exhaustive) of some of the ways maths can be used during your everyday lives.


Most importantly, have fun with Maths!


As the Internet becomes ever more accessible, it is important to remember about using the Internet safely. The term e-safety is used to cover this area. 

Good practices include, keeping your username and password safe and not sharing it with others, as well as, to tell a trusted adult if someone or something has made you uncomfortable or worried whilst on the Internet.
