We are surrounded by mathematical learning opportunities all the time. Computational skills are some of these that can be practised and reinforced at home. Other areas that are actually more easily developed at home than at school are:

  • telling the time
  • measurement - length, capacity, volume and weight
  • making the connection between numeracy and money
  • basic facts to 10, doubles to 20 
By involving children in activities such as baking, arts and crafts and building you will be bombarded with opportunities to enrich their mathematical understanding. When playing board games it is best to use two dice as this necessitates the need for adding. 

Please find below fun ways to support your child's maths learning using Cards and dice.
