Inspire Maths home activities
The Inspire Maths Home Activities give your child an opportunity to practise the maths that they have been doing at school, and give you an opportunity to support their learning.
Each Home Activity takes between ten and twenty minutes. The activities contain information on how the activity will help your child, important words and phrases that your child is learning, further opportunities to talk about your child’s ideas, and particular strategies or issues to look out for. You are not expected to teach your child the mathematical concepts themselves.
You won’t need any special equipment as most objects required for the activities can be found around the home. Some activities also include an activity sheet that contains illustrations or further questions to support your child’s learning.
