Miss Mcrann and Miss Wright (our Maths fanatics) planned a fantastic hands on day that the children thoroughly enjoyed. To continue to build on this excitement at home, Miss Mcrann has detailed the importance of ‘hands-on’ maths.
Parents often ask how they can support their child at home in Maths. It is important to remember that engaging your child in Maths can take on many different forms. It may not always involve sitting down to complete traditional or formal written Maths. One of the best, and cheapest ways, you can help support your child at home is to engage them in Mathematical talk.
Mathematical talk is a great way for you to encourage your child to practise their mental Maths skills, develop a better sense of number, as well as for them to think more often and deeply about Maths. Engaging in Mathematical dialogue will also help your child appreciate the importance and many applications of the subject.
