Ben deserves an MBE or some such honour in recognition of how he always hits the nail on the head and getting the message bang on for young children. https://t.co/9WAB67HnZw

I am fortunate to have a wonderfully close family but there are 225k older people across the UK who can go over a week without speaking to anyone. Please take the time to listen to others and … you never know what words you may get back! https://t.co/Z7Vk9ryek8

Before we ever put a pencil in a child’s hands, those hands should dig, climb, press, pull, squish, twist, and pinch in a wide array of environments and with a variety of materials. - Amanda Morgan https://t.co/DlJvilDjhL

Such an important message, not just for children but adults as well. Empathy is the bedrock of effective relationships. More empathy and understanding can build a tolerant and compassionate community. https://t.co/YtQb6ACTPW

If your child is unwell, but isn’t displaying any of the three coronavirus symptoms, there’s no need to book a test. After they’ve recovered, they can return straight back to school. .

I am a disabled person. I do not have special needs. I am a wheelchair user. I do not have special needs I need access, accommodation and equity. These are not special needs. They are the needs of every human being.

Count On Me by Miguel Tanco is a superb picture book all about - Katherine shares how mathematics surrounds her. Love the maths journal at the end with explanations for readers. A seriously good way to inspire children to explore the maths around them https://t.co/U91ZWmHKDh

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.
