Maths
 
We all use maths every day, often without realising it.
 
We believe that every child can develop the numeracy skills they will need, both at school and throughout their lives. Helping your child feel confident about maths will give them a head start.
 
A good understanding of everyday maths will help your child with important tasks, such as making decisions and understanding information.
It will also help them develop essential lifelong skills such as:
  • Working out how much food is needed for the family meal and following recipes
  • Splitting the bill after a meal out with friends and working out what tip to leave
  • Converting currency rates when abroad
  • Managing personal finances, budgeting and saving
  • Working out which are the best buys in the supermarket, checking change, working out sale price of an item
  • Getting to work on time, estimating how long a journey will take, knowing when to fill up on fuel
  • Knowing if the answer on the calculator is reasonable, or if you pressed the wrong button
  • Reading data presented in a variety of forms, such as graphs and tables, scales on a thermometer or weighing scales, and interpreting statistics in the news
  • DIY jobs such as painting and decorating, or working out how many walls tiles are needed to cover an area.
