Practical Maths

Maths games don't have to be computer-based. 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, 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. Finally, and by no means last, 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!
