1 Maths help at home booklet Foundation and Key Stage 1 As your child moves from simple counting and adding to becoming a fluent mathematician, it is not always clear especially to parents who are not confident mathematicians how to help. But in fact our help is crucial, and can be the difference between success and failure.

2 Golden Rule Whatever you do, make sure your children enjoy it. If they struggle to understand, make mistakes, or get bored: keep calm, make it easier, change the subject, tell them a joke, play football, go to the park. but please don t get cross or impatient do not say you were no good at maths when you were at school-you could put them off maths for life. Actually making mistakes or getting stuck is a great way to develop our learning skills - make it into a positive rather than a negative. Maths is all about taking risks and trial and error so the act of perseverance is crucial in order to succeed. Getting it wrong is ok!! Trying lots of different strategies is also ok!! Generally the advice is; Talk about and involve children in the situations in which you use maths in everyday life; Play games involving numbers and/or logic, such as card games, dominoes, darts, draughts, chess etc.; Stimulate their thinking at times of boredom, (such as when travelling), with mental activities; Check with the school for any specific help which would be useful. Also check the methods they are teaching with your child s teacher. The following gives a very rough idea of appropriate activities but any number games that the children enjoy are great

3 For all ages One very good idea which is appropriate for any level, so the whole car/bus/train/plane can be involved. Ask the question: 'The answer is 10 (or any number), what s the question? ' Possible responses: 8 plus 2 1 million divided by one hundred thousand 5 x times 4 the number before subtract 9989 the square root of 100 This is a brilliant activity because: there's no failure; it stimulates thinking about and stretching knowledge of numbers and mathematical relationships; it's good fun. Look out for car number plates. What is the number on the plate? What is this to the nearest 10 or 100 or 1000? How many more would you need to reach the next multiple of 10, 100 or 1000?

4 Foundation Stage, Key Stage 1 (3 7 years) Mental activities Practise chanting the number names. Encourage your child to join in with you. When they are confident, try starting from different numbers e.g. 4, 5, 6 Also try counting backwards. Sing number rhymes together there are lots of commercial CD s available. Give your child the opportunity to count objects (coins, pasta, shapes, buttons etc.) Encourage them to move each object as they count them. Count things you cannot touch window panes, jumps, claps, oranges in a bag. Play games that involve counting e.g. snakes and ladders, dice games. Look for numerals in the environment e.g. door numbers Or road signs Make mistakes when chanting, counting or ordering numbers. Can your child spot what you have done wrong? Counting in 1s, then 2s or 10s, e.g. as you climb stairs, walk to the local shop etc. Chose a number of the week e.g. 5. Practice counting in 5 s, up to 5 (50, 500, 5 000, ), on from 5, collect groups of 5 items.

7 Everyday situations Sorting things out and putting things away, e.g. shopping, toys, cutlery, and clothes. Talk about which things go together and where things go, giving clear instructions for position such as in the cupboard, on the bottom shelf. Matching pairs of socks, shoes, gloves. Ordering and sequencing when getting dressed, going to the shops, having a bath etc. Talk about what you do first, what you do next, and last of all. Comparing objects according to size, weight or capacity, e.g. the longest spoon, the lightest shopping bag, the cup which holds the most, the shortest person, the widest hand, the bottle which is half full. Matching and counting when setting the table, preparing food, sharing out food, etc. Counting, weighing, measuring capacity and timing when cooking Talking about time, referring to the clock at different times throughout the day, (preferably a clock with hands), setting times for certain events, e.g. We ll have lunch at 1 o clock, timing events, e.g. How long will it take to wash the dishes? Handling small amounts of money when shopping, counting small totals.

8 Play activities/games Talking about directions when walking around or playing with toy vehicles etc. (e.g. forwards, backwards, straight on, turn left/right.) Making models with building bricks, Lego, boxes etc. Talk about shape and position; count the number of similar shapes etc. Playing games involving matching, recognising numbers and shapes or counting such as snap, pairs (pelmonism), dominoes, board and dice games (e.g. snakes and ladders). Counting particular things on journeys, e.g. red cars, fields with cows in, churches etc. Sharing books. Sit together when you read to children so that they can follow the pictures. Go back over the story and talk about the order of events, the number, position and shape of things

9 Remember! Be positive even if you don t feel it. Ask your child to explain to you how they are doing their maths. (It may be different to the way you were taught) Talk to them about and involve them in everyday maths. Ask the teachers if you have any questions about the maths your child is doing. Have fun!
