Practical, Real Life Maths

Maths is all around us everyday.  You can provide valuable maths activities for your child at home using some of the ideas below:

 

- Use tupperware and containers / bottles to make your own water table to explore capacity, pouring and measure.  (the recycling box is a good place to source this)

- Learn to tell the time to the nearest hour and half hour.

- recognise and sort real coins and money.  Make a tuck shop at home for daily fruit and snacks and encourage children to budget their day.

- Baking is ideal for measuring and reading scales.

- Board games promote valuable maths skills - snakes and ladders, cards, monopoly.

- Measure and make your own play dough  

- Look for numbers in the world around us - front doors, road signs etc.  Can they tell you if its odd / even?  A multiple of 10?  Can they add two door numbers together?

- Counting, counting and more counting.  Count everything as you go - stairs, toys, sweets.  Practise counting in 2s - socks, shoes etc.
