Every family can help their children with maths, you don't need to be an expert and we can help!
Developing number confidence and a positive attitude to maths have a crucial impact on a child’s schooling and their ability to use numbers in everyday life as they grow.
- Be positive about maths. Try not to say things like “I can’t do maths” or “I hated maths at school” – your child may start to think like that themselves
- Point out the maths in everyday life. Include your child in activities involving numbers and measuring, such as shopping, cooking and travelling
- Praise your child for effort rather than for being “clever”. This shows them that by working hard they can always improve
building your own confidence helps when supporting your child with maths
