Helping your child at home
In order to achieve “mastery” we teach maths using the Concrete-Pictorial- Abstract approach. This means you will see lots of practical activities in every classroom.
There are many activities you can do at home to support your child’s learning with mastery. Online games and activities that focus on the practical or mental side of maths are very useful. Maths games don't have to be computer-based, though.
There are lots of ways in which you can bring maths to life for your child through simple games and activities. Whether out shopping, using the context of money to help develop your child's skills, or helping them to better understand measurement when baking or putting together the new rabbit's hutch, there's always an opportunity for a 'maths moment'!
Board games can be great for developing a child's maths skills too! Playing these can be a really powerful way for young children to become comfortable with our number system, spotting patterns and literally playing with numbers. Dice are an amazing way to bring numbers to life, and can be used in so many creative ways to have fun... and learn at the same time!
