Staying positive when talking to children about maths

Across the UK, thousands of parents have stepped up to the plate during lockdown to help their kids keep up with schoolwork.

It’s a situation that arose with little warning, and some adults can be forgiven for feeling a little apprehensive about homeschooling in subjects where they lack confidence.

One of those subjects is maths. Some people can feel a real sense of worry and confusion when dealing with anything involving number and figures – it's known as maths anxiety. Here are some tips to help you remain positive when helping your children with their maths home learning.

Maths Games Booklet

Miss Yale has put together a booklet of games for parents and children to play at home. The games in the booklet are designed to help children develop their quick recall of number facts. The ability to remember number facts such as the pairs of numbers that add up to make 10 (and 20), doubles and times tables help children later on when they are learning formal written methods in maths. When they are learning formal written methods, if they are also struggling with these basic number facts, it can make the whole process far more difficult.

The games are fairly short and simple and if played regularly over time will help the children become more proficient. The children like these games, so it is a way of doing some maths at home without it feeling like ‘work’. It is the equivalent of the benefits children gain with reading if they read daily at home.

The resources are easy to obtain, using dice, playing cards and paper and pencil. You may need to buy more dice than you would normally have in the drawer, but spot dice and 1-10 dice can be purchased easily and cheaply from Amazon.

The booklet has been organised by what maths skills the games are helping e.g. number bonds, addition etc.

It is important to note that all children can benefit from playing these simple games and they will have lots of fun playing them too!

Find the booklet in the page downloads below.
