Maths at Newland St. John’s
Supporting your Child with Maths at Home
Top tips for parents:
1. It is really important to be positive about maths. Don’t say ‘I couldn’t do maths at school.’ Instead, try to encourage a love for investigation and solving problems.
2. Point out maths in everyday life- when you are cooking, travelling, at the supermarket.It can be as simple as pointing out the time during the day.
3. Praise effort rather than talent. It is ok to make mistakes and struggle a little as that is how learning takes place.
