Need help with support Maths as home? Not sure how Maths is taught in school? This page aims to provide you with information to help support any Maths learning at home. Please check our policies for the strategies used to teach addition, subtraction, multiplication, division and fractions throughout each year group.
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.
Don't shy away from maths if you did not like it at school. Try to find new ways to enjoy the subject with your child.

Point out the different shapes to be found around your home.
Take your child shopping and talk about the quantities of anything you buy.
