Numeracy at Home


As with Literacy, talk about Maths as much as possible at home. Try to find examples in everyday life – such as using small change or measuring ingredients when cooking – to make Maths relevant and fun.


There’s a lot of focus on developing Mental Maths skills during Key Stage 1 (ages 4-7). You can help by practising times tables and asking for the answers to simple sums.


You could also try to:

  • talk about pocket money and what your child could buy with it
  • get your child to weigh the fruit and vegetables at the shops
  • measure your child’s height over time, and ask them to record how much they’ve grown
