Maths is all around us. We all use elements of maths every day without even realising it. There are many ways we can engage children in maths and develop your child’s mathematical understanding both at school and at home. 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 didn’t like it at school. Try to find new ways to enjoy the subject with your child.
